Support for Internet Explorer

It looks like you’re using Microsoft Internet Explorer as your web browser. This is now considered ‘end-of-life’, and Microsoft is withdrawing support for it because it uses outdated technology. This means that it will no longer receive important security updates and previous bugs will not be fixed.

This means that the risk and cost are placed on service providers to develop twice for modern browsers and again for Internet Explorer. As free, modern alternatives are available for most platforms it is difficult to justify spending public money on further development.

Please see the Withdrawal of support for Internet Explorer notice from NHS Digital for more information and guidance.

Tide – Together in Dementia Everyday

Tide (Together in Dementia Everyday) is a UK-wide charity for carers & former carers of people living with dementia.

Tide connects, mobilises & supports carers of people with dementia to recognise their own value & contribution to society. Carers tell us that their voices are often not heard & their own needs go unrecognised. We build skills, knowledge & confidence so that carers can speak up & influence change in society.

Resources

Tide’s resources page for unpaid carers of people with dementia. These materials are the outcome of our work from recent years and have been co-produced with current and former carers. All the materials are free and designed to help you at various stages of your caring journey from managing feelings of grief to moving a loved one into residential care.

For further advice and support please see our National Advice and Helplines Page

Carer Development Programme

Understanding Living Grief and Bereavement
  • 25 Jun 2024, 14:00 – 15:30
  • Online
  • Book Now

Feelings and behaviours of grief and bereavement are very much permitted and accepted in society when there is loss of life. The common assumption is that they only occur when there has been a death. When caring for someone with Dementia you can experience feelings of grief and bereavement when the person is still living. When someone is still living you are told “Be Strong” or “At Least” and encouraged to suppress these feelings as an action of bravery, strength or staying positive. There is little awareness, acknowledgment or understanding about feelings of grief and bereavement when a person is still living – but when you care for someone with dementia, loss does not just mean loss of life… 

What we are going to talk about: 

  • Trigger points and different circumstances where you may feel feelings of grief and bereavement
  • Unspoken thoughts and feelings
  • Advice from other carers who have experienced this
  • Hints and tips in supporting you with these feelings

As carers you will be involved in phone calls and meetings with a variety of different professionals where you will have to advocate on behalf of yourself or the person you care for in order to try and get the support, help and services you need.We will take you through some strategies and give you some hints and tips from our toolbox to help you be prepared for these conversations, help you get your point across effectively and ensure that you have an equal seat at the table.To register please click the ‘Book Now’ button.

This session will help carers look at their emotional wellbeing and how to look after it both throughout any involvement with tide and beyond. Talking about our own experiences or what is happening in our own lives is an extremely emotive process and this workshop aims to help understand the triggers and give participants key practical tools which they can implement both throughout any activities with tide and in every day life.These sessions offer a safe, pressure-free space for carers to connect with each other and share their experiences if they want to.  We hope this session offers you the space to be open and honest about your caring journey no matter where you are in that journey or how you feel.
We will be talking about:

  • Understanding self-care and self-compassion
  • A carer’s case study – taking the first steps in doing something for you 
  • Tips and advice on how to “fill your cup”
