If we all implement this, then the world for people living with dementia will improve.

The whole four days has been a wonderful experience and one that will continue in my DCM™ mapping in the future. Both trainers worked well together to deliver excellent sessions to everyone’s needs.

One of the best, most useful courses I have attended in a long time. Both enjoyable and very informative.

The course is first class, quality and thorough. Loved it.

Feedback from Making Space hosted DCM course

"This course should be made mandatory to all care staff. I went to Uni for 3 years, and learnt more about PCC for people with dementia in the last 4 days"

"I will take the skills and knowledge that you have taught me and try to make my own piece of space the best that it can be"

"Please continue to do this training for other people to help people with dementia"

"As an OT the principles of PCC and DCM are a perfect fit with the philosophy underpinning OT"
