Are you worried about leaving the person you support alone?

Tue 27 Feb
10:30 - 13:00

Many carers find it difficult to even get a small break from caring as they find it difficult to leave the person they support alone due to concerns for their safety.

Duration: 1 week

Who is this course for?
This course will be particularly helpful for carers who are supporting someone who has a cognitive impairment e.g. dementia, brain injury, a stroke, learning disability or autism.

Weekly Breakdown
Edinburgh Council’s Telecare Team has a range of equipment and gadgets to help carers feel more confident about leaving the person they care for home alone. This show and tell style seminar was created to introduce carers to resources available.

What carers will get from this course

  • Increased awareness of what support is available to help some live safely in their own home.
  • An opportunity to share and learn with others in similar situations.
