People living with dementia suffer a severe decline in mental ability such as short term memory and concentration, communication language and impaired critical and thinking skills and therefore, they need high levels of care to help them cope with their everyday lives.
This Dementia Awareness course is designed for carers to learn more about the condition and feel more confident about caring for someone who has this condition.
The course will give the carer knowledge of what dementia is and the different types of dementia. It covers early recognition and signs and symptoms to look out for. It is suitable for learners of all levels, including those who work in care home settings, medical settings or simply relatives who are looking after a family member with the condition at home.
Courses for the family can be delivered in the home.
