Dementia Awareness Training

CPD Approved

There are currently 944,000 people with dementia in the UK

Course Description

The number of people being diagnosed with dementia in the UK is growing. It’s a sad, uncertain and scary time for the people who receive the diagnosis and for those who care about them.

One of the best things to have in this situation is knowledge. This makes awareness training absolutely vital, so people know how to access the best care, support and treatments as early as possible, and as the condition progresses.

The course covers the signs, symptoms and different types of dementia; the impact that symptoms have on people physically, socially and emotionally; the responsibility of employers; the role of carers and community systems; and it offers practical guidance on how to live well with dementia.

This course is suitable for anyone who wants to learn more about dementia for either personal or professional reasons – but note that this course does not give medical advice and should not replace any information or directions provided directly by a healthcare professional.

Target Audience

This Dementia Awareness Training course has been designed for the use of anyone, whether that be a family member, friend, colleague, employer or carer. It offers key information for the user to better understand the condition and what support is available.
