More about Working with Dementia
'Dementia' is not a single diagnosis as such but a collective term for several syndromes or diseases.
Even better known diagnoses such as Alzheimers or Vascular Dementia are experienced very differently by every sufferer and every family.
But there are factors common to all dementias and these are often factors which present particular challenges to care. Memory loss, confusion, personality change and cognitive impairment are all features that vary in severity form person to person but will certainly provide challenges for every worker in residential, domicilliary or nursing home care.
Our Working with Dementia programme is designed and delivered by experienced hands-on practitioners with an intimate knowledge of their subject. We can deliver the programme as a 1-day in-house course or as one of our Bite Size Courses and can of course provide training in any venue and in any format convenient to your organisation. We can also deliver a Train the Trainer programme and Training Packs for this subject area.
