Worldwide, more than 47 million people have dementia. Caregivers, often family members or friends, are crucial for people with dementia to live a life with meaning and dignity. For many it can be all consuming; placing a strain on work, finances and relationships. It can also take a heavy emotional toll.
The WHO developed iSupport, an online training programme for caregivers of people with dementia, to help caregivers to:
understand the impact of dementia;
deal with challenging behaviours;
provide good care;
and take care of themselves.
