6Cs Live! is celebrating International Midwives Day and International Nurses Day 2014 with a series of webinars where patients, families and carers will share their stories and what the 6Cs mean to them. Through these webinars we will also be celebrating and highlighting the wide context in which care is delivered by nurses, midwives and care staff.
Tommy on Tour and the 6Cs
In this webinar, Tommy Whitelaw will share his experiences of caring for his mum, Joan, whom he lost to vascular dementia.
He will also be sharing a selection of stories from other carers highlighting how the 6Cs can really make a difference in the care for those living with dementia and in supporting their carers.
Tommy launched the 'Tommy on Tour' awareness campaign, collecting stories from people across Scotland caring for a loved one with dementia.
Tommy currently works on the Dementia Carers Voices project with the Health and Social Care Alliance building on his ‘Tommy on Tour’ campaign by engaging with carers, collecting their life stories and raising awareness amongst health and social care professionals on both dementia and caring.
If you care for someone with dementia, know someone with dementia, or would like to know more about this topic, please register and join us on this webinar.
