Very few basic programs for family/unpaid carers are available. Most recent data (2017) showed there are only two training programmes at national level for carers of people with chronic diseases or disabilities (López-Ortega & Aranco, 2019), and one for carers of people with dementia provided by the National Institute of Geriatrics. The course “Person-centred care for people with dementia” is an online course for general public, in this way people can know and establish different care practices for people with dementia, using a person-centred approach.
