Caring for a person with dementia can be very difficult at times. Dementia not only affects the person living with the condition, but also the entire family. The greatest challenge is on you, the caregiver. With a better understanding of dementia, you can plan and cope with the challenges that you may encounter in your caregiving journey.
Family Caregiver Training Programme (FCTP) is a two-day training programme designed for caregivers caring for persons with dementia to support you in your caregiving role. Comprising of core and elective modules, this programme provides you with essential knowledge and skills to care for the person with dementia using the Person-Centred approach. The interactive training workshops serve as a platform for you to gain new insights into caring for the person with dementia and yourself, share real-life scenarios for discussion, and identify potential strategies for managing caregiver stress.
