As the external consultant for MacIntyre’s Dementia Project, I’m delighted to share links to the resources from the Wellbeing for Life Toolkit that MacIntyre are now making available on their website.
I have written – in whole or in part – many of these resources, as well as reviewing/revising all of the resources for MacIntyre in Summer 2017 as part of my consultancy role.
Resources released so far:
