Awareness of Dementia

"I found the course very useful. I now have a greater understanding of service users with Dementia. I can now evaluate the way I communicate and behave with service users."

Course Aims

To give care staff an understanding of what dementia is and how to work effectively with sufferers of the various diseases that lead to dementia.

Suitable For

Anyone caring for sufferers of dementia.

Pre-requisite

None

Certification

Delegates will receive a Norvic certificate of attendance entitled Person-centred Dementia Care - Induction.

Course Venue

Courses can be held at our training venues in Norwich, Norfolk and Cambridge, Cambridgeshire. Alternatively, courses can be arranged at your own site anywhere in the UK (subject to suitability).

Syllabus

An experienced carer can find some of the challengers offered by a person suffering dementia a little frightening and we look at what can provoke atypical behaviour and how to react to these challenges. We hope that delegates find the course challenging and inspiring as we revisit the essence of person-centred care and how this can be successfully implemented in all care settings. We hope for healthy debate and exchange of ideas to enhance your practice. At the end of the session we look at an audit tool to help create an action plan for the future.
