People with dementia are still people. They have stories and character. They are all unique individuals. In this course, we look at how you can support people to live well with dementia including how to provide support in the later stages. We will explain what dementia is and give you key facts about dementia in the UK today.
We look at the 5 main types of dementia and acknowledge young onset dementia. We will identify the symptoms and stages of dementia and what happens during diagnosis so that people know what to do if they have concerns about a person who has not been diagnosed.
We will look at providing care and support, communication techniques and information about how people can live well with dementia as well as links to organisations and resources where you can get more information. There are links throughout the course and some great videos where you can undertake further learning.
