Training for Carers of People with Dementia - English

The STAR training is appropriate for all persons, from professionals to relatives, caring for a person with dementia at home.

More about STAR

STAR first launched in 2010, as a collaborative project between seven different European countries. These include Sweden, Malta, Romania, Spain, England, the Netherlands, Italy, and Northern Ireland. Their combined expertise made it possible to gather, and combine, in-depth research, and create greater cohesion and access to dementia care material across Europe. STAR Training provides a clearer understanding of the disease and how to provide better support and care, and improve European mobility of dementia care workers.
