We are inviting carers, family members, friends and community volunteers to the Museum of Liverpool and our museum partners across England to find out more about dementia and the useful resources and activities museums can provide to support you and your loved ones. 

The free, half-day dementia awareness workshop is specially developed for family carers. It will include an introduction to dementia through video stories to help understand the experience of living with dementia and being a carer. There will be an opportunity to try out our innovative My House of Memories app and take part in dementia-friendly museum activities. 

Please note that due to the sensitive nature of the topic, House of Memories may prompt an emotional response in those attending. You are welcome to take a break if necessary.
