Why is this course important?

Caring for a loved one with dementia poses many challenges for families and carers. People with dementia from conditions such as Alzheimer’s and related diseases have a progressive brain disorder that makes it more and more difficult for them to remember things, think clearly, communicate with others, or take care of themselves. Also, dementia can cause mood swings and even change a person’s personality and behaviour.

While developing this understanding dementia course, we knew all too well that working with dementia clients can be challenging, but it is also enriching. Providing specialist dementia training for health and social care workers makes a considerable difference in the following ways:

  • It explains the biological components of dementia care (anatomy/physiology of the brain and differing dementias),
  • It helps them to understand how dementia affects the client and their family,
  • It enables carers to prepare for the unexpected in advance and how to deal with it when it comes,
  • It minimises the risks for clients, their families and for carers in dealing with challenging behaviours, such as wandering, agitation or paranoia,
  • It allows for the development of a person-centred approach in dementia care, and
  • It educates the carer on the changing needs along the continuum of the dementia journey.
