When a person with dementia finds that their mental abilities are declining, they often feel vulnerable and in need of reassurance, care and support. Carers need to do everything they can to help the person with dementia to retain their sense of identity and feelings of self-worth.
Caring for a person with dementia can be challenging and requires a high level of skills and knowledge to cope with all the problems the dementia sufferer may face. This course is designed to provide you with the level of knowledge and understanding required to ensure you are able to deliver the highest possible standards of care.
The course is made up of four modules:
- Dementia: Causes, Symptoms and Diagnosis

It is very important that people with dementia are treated with respect. It is important to remember that a person with dementia is still a unique and valued human being, regardless of their illness. It should make it easier for the carer to realise why they behave in certain ways by understanding what the person is going through.
By having as much background information and knowledge as possible, the delivery of care and support can be more effective. This course will provide you with the level of knowledge required to ensure your care delivery is of the very highest standard.
