I now have so much more to give to those I meet with dementia and so much more in the way of confidence … Great that you did not limit this education to university students, but gave all of us who are interested the opportunity to learn. Thank you.
I am enjoying the course immensely! Online study is a new area for me and I am loving it. Thank you!
I have really enjoyed the first week of the course. I already feel more empowered to help my darling mum with her Alzheimer's.
