FutureLearn: Creating Moments of Joy for People with Alzheimer’s

 with  Christopher Mong

Understand how to create moments of joy for people with Alzheimer’s

When someone has short-term memory loss their life is made up of moments. This means we cannot always create a wonderful day, but we can create a wonderful moment.

In this course you’ll find out how to encourage and enjoy such wonderful moments. You’ll get practical tips to ease the daily struggles of Alzheimer’s for those living with it, and those helping them. Ultimately you will learn how to look beyond the challenges of the disease and focus on creating the best possible life for those living with Alzheimer’s.

This course is for anyone caring for someone with Alzheimer’s disease, or anyone who wants to know more about dealing with the effects of the disease. You don’t need any past experience.
