Sharing a scrapbook of memories
This was the best interactive workshop.
My opinions and experiences mattered as all our circumstances and experiences are unique,
and yet we all gained so much insight as we could feed off one another.
We learn so much from one another at these workshops!
Workshops or webinars
The course is offered in two formats:
- Four workshop sessions in Wynberg. We meet fortnightly on Saturday afternoons from 2.30-5.00 pm.
- Six online webinar sessions offered once a week for an hour at times to be announced.
Find out about the next course on our page on the Care Champ website.

Participants attending a
‘Transforming the Dementia Journey’ workshop
I’m so, so glad that I didn’t hesitate to join this course.
I’d read up on Dementia and done an on-line course previously, but I find Alice’s
‘Transforming the Dementia Journey’
hugely valuable, a combination of her clear, informative input and our personal interaction in the group.
In the webinars we can share with one another
and watch a presentation
You can participate in a course of six one-hour webinar sessions offered weekly in the comfort of your own home.
We cover the same content as the workshop series, but the online version makes the course available to those who can’t attend the workshops .
Because interaction and sharing are an important aspect of the course, participation is limited to four people.
Alice, you really don’t know what these 6 weeks meant to us and did for us.
When we started, I understood nothing about dementia. Both of us were very afraid.
But now I am actually looking forward to this journey with my husband. You prepared us for this.
A very big thank you from both of us.
Over the six sessions I was struck by how much benefit is offered for carers.
Lots of links, suggestions, skills, coping mechanisms – something carers need to keep buoyant.
I found it so helpful to get some basic lessons on what is happening to the brain in dementia …
You facilitated the group well, listening compassionately to each of us, creating a safe space for
intimate sharing in virtual reality.
I’m grateful to Care Champ for handling the bookings for our Transforming the Dementia Journey courses.
