We highly recommended people attend the “Understanding Dementia” course first, as other courses lead on from the ideas and information covered.

Course content includes:

  • Recognising different types of dementia
  • Improving awareness of possible symptoms
  • Understanding different parts of the brain
  • Understanding how memories are stored and how dementia can affect them
  • Understanding the impact dementia might have on an individual’s reality
  • Various exercises and activities to improve understanding of the experience of dementia
  • Recommended responses to certain behaviours or statements to reduce anxiety.
