‘It was a complete pleasure being in the room and in the group today. Everyone appeared to be fully present and the pace/material and values embodied in this approach were relevant and interesting. I am inspired. We can change outcomes for people with dementia. We can change the discourse of negativity’

As a response to growing interest in the Getting Along approach, together with Innovations in Dementia CIC I will now be facilitating a one-day open course in EXETER in June.
