Dementia Awareness Training

Our dementia awareness course is aimed at individuals working with people with dementia in a health or social care setting. Attendees will leave the course with a clear understanding of dementia, how to manage it effectively, and a greater awareness of its sensitive issues. Our course can be used as an introduction to the area or as an excellent refresher to maintain or update the delegate’s knowledge.

Dementia is an umbrella term for several disorders affecting the brain, particularly memory, behaviour, thinking and emotion.

Alzheimer’s disease is the most common form of dementia. Other causes include vascular disease, dementia with Lewy bodies and frontal-temporal dementia.

Symptoms include difficulty recalling recent events, concentrating, and following conversations. It is incurable at this time, but research into a cure is ongoing.

Dementia describes the symptoms that occur when the brain is affected by specific diseases and conditions. It is a chronic progressive problem of cognition—a failure of the brain’s functions. It affects people at different stages of life, various parts of the brain, and at different speeds.

This course is intended to give you an overview of the common types and symptoms of dementia and explain how it can affect the brain in different ways. It also covers strategies for working with clients with dementia and dealing with challenging behaviour. Our course is intended for anyone who works with or around people who may be living with dementia.
