Carers stories:

Here at tide, we want to change the way carers are recognised, valued, and treated. It is our mission to ensure that the needs of these carers are recognised and valued by absolutely everyone. We believe in the power of sharing carer’s stories, so everyone can understand the skills that looking after someone with dementia includes. Our carers are experts by experience and their voices and stories need to be heard.
