    “It was one of the best courses in Dementia I have ever completed. Gemma is practical and approachable. Her passion and knowledge for the subject is infectious. It was such an engaging course and suitable for all levels of knowledge- Novice to Expert. It has improved my knowledge of dementia and how I can communicate with our residents at the different stages of their illness. I am looking forward to the 4-day course in September and meeting Gemma for more stories and case studies and nuggets of information to further enhance my practice.”
