How it works

The Butterfly Community is a group of people across the world who are working to change the culture of dementia care.

It brings together David Sheard’s Culture Change model of learning from the development of The Butterfly Homes and Helen Sanderson’s expertise in person-centred practices.

Designed to help you grow

Each month we learn about a different theme, and all our learning is delivered online via these four steps:

1. Monthly webinars

These are live online sessions hosted by David, Helen or a key colleague. We use them to introduce the month’s theme in detail, and you will have an opportunity to ask questions directly.

2. Self-assessment

Based around each month’s theme, a short self-assessment will enable you to identify where you are currently in relation to best practice.

3. Downloadable resources

A range of learning materials are delivered to your inbox and also available to download from the member’s area of this website.

4. Group discussions

Our members-only Facebook group then gives you a space to talk about what you’ve learnt, swap ideas and develop together with other community members from around the world.

Together, these four ways of learning give us a way to grow individually and as a community, changing the culture of dementia care around the world.
