Dementia awareness training sheffield rotherham

Dementia Awareness

course duration:

Half day or full day

Course outline:

Dementia affects millions of people in the UK with 1 in 14 people over the age of 65 having some type of dementia. If you support people with dementia (e.g. friend or family member) or are new to care work, then this awareness course is for you, as you will learn how to provide support and understanding in a person-centred way.

Group activities are a favourite part of the course because they emphasise just how a person with dementia may feel when trying to communicate. Solutions to common issues are then discussed between the tutor and other health care workers.

You don't need any previous qualifications or experience in order to benefit from this course - just a passion for people and a desire to make a positive difference to the lives of the individuals you support.

What this course covers:

Attendees of Dementia Awareness training courses provided by Rotherham Metropolitan Borough Council and Doncaster Metropolitan Borough Council can now become Dementia Friends in the course.
