Who are we?

NewDementiaCare was founded by Catharine Arakelian and Jessica McKoen in 2008.

NewDementiaCare is an association of experienced trainers, care workers and care partners. We share a commitment to helping care partners and employers across the UK provide the very highest standards of dementia care.

In particular, we are committed to training care staff who so often miss out on quality training; agency staff, part-time workers and staff from overseas. Many of these are women with little access to any training except through their workplaces.

We have created a very cost-effective subscription scheme to enable even the smallest homes to afford this training.

We welcome enquiries from employment agencies, domiciliary care providers and larger care homes.

We have been profoundly influenced by David Sheard's urgency to change dementia care culture in the UK now. We welcome enquiries from a wide variety of trainers, care partners and other people who share this spirit of hope and change, and might want to join us.
