Empowered Conversations is part of Age UK Salford’s Dementia Support Service. The Service now offers more support than ever to people in Salford affected by dementia. Caregivers want a simple, one-stop-shop of support from a diagnosis through to bereavement and beyond. Dementia Support Service provides this, from one-to-one online person-centred counselling & coaching support for carers, peer support and social groups for people affected by dementia through to a learning hub for self-development that includes training on legal and finance, carers rights, personal care and improving communications.

The communication courses delivered by Empowered Conversation are available to all family caregivers across Greater Manchester.

We understand that tips, advice and experiences from people caring for loved ones with dementia can make you feel less alone. Check out our videos and blogs, please get in touch if you’d like to share your experience to help others.

Are you a Salford resident caring for somebody living with dementia?

I was recommended the Empowered Conversations course to help me communicate better with my mum who has Parkinson’s and Lewy body disease. The exercises we did in the sessions were extremely helpful.


Being aware of the barriers to communication, allows me to assess each situation individually, which helps keep a check on old habits, like talking from another room, or looking at the television whilst talking. – Duane, Rochdale.
