"Knowledge is power. If we are to provide good quality care, we need to be properly educated and feel supported. Our role is support you to develop the practical skills and knowledge to not only provide good quality care to your loved one, but to ensure that you too are taking good care of yourself in what can be an extremely stressful journey that is dementia."
Brooke George, Holistic OT
