Overview

Dementia is a growing problem in our modern society. People are living longer, and thus, you find that as they get older, many suffer from this condition. It is a sad situation as you watch a once lively person start to forget, and soon, not even remember their own names. If you wish to work with people suffering from dementia, or you already work with them, the Dementia Awareness course will provide insight into this disease and equip you with the relevant skills to take on a job role in the health and social care industries. Dementia has no cure, however, with the proper support and guidance people with this condition can continue to lead a dignified life. Common symptoms of dementia include confusion and memory loss, difficulties with communication and carrying out simple tasks. Raising awareness on dementia will help identify this vulnerable group in society and enable you to take the necessary steps to ensure that people living with dementia have a proper support system in place.

The course will help you identify typical behaviours of patients with dementia, and you will soon learn to deal with them in your capacity. With key modules being explored fully, you will gain the confidence to work with people affected by dementia and provide the support and guidance you can whether it’s in a hospice, care residence, hospital or home care.

The Dementia Awareness course features practical tips and advice on how to help patients with dementia meet their basic living requirements. This is a CPD certified course which demonstrates to potential employers that you are continually developing yourself, and will make you a desirable candidate across the adult and social care sectors.
