It is estimated that more than 1m people in the UK will suffer from dementia by 2025. Every three minutes someone develops dementia.
These stark statistics that show how much of a challenge dementia care is and will continue to be for many years. The symptoms can be small to start with but can be extremely debilitating for someone with the condition and for those around them.
This online dementia awareness course is designed to deliver a good, easily digestible awareness of dementia, its causes, symptoms, and how it affects those who live with the condition. It’s also a great introductory dementia course for carers or anyone working in a public-facing role who are likely to find themselves encountering people with dementia.
This course is aimed at people working in the adult safeguarding area, those living and dealing with the condition as well as anyone wishing to access good dementia training online. It’s especially useful for careworkers, healthcare assistants, customer-facing staff in any industry, including banks, shops, leisure centres, GP surgeries and transport providers.
The course is split into two easily digestible modules:
– Causes, symptoms and treatment of dementia
– Living with dementia
The first module covers the early symptoms of dementia, what people with dementia are still able to do, the causes of dementia, dementia diagnosis, how dementia progresses, treatments and how to plan for the future when you have dementia.
The second module looks at early onset dementia and how this affects family life and work. Included in this module are are issues such as driving following a dementia diagnosis, how to support a person with dementia, communication, perception, the home environment and maintaining independence. This course is a good grounding for anyone who needs to know more about the dementia and ways to deal with it.
