About the Dementia Awareness training course

Our Dementia Awareness training is designed for healthcare professionals and care workers who work with people with dementia. It covers the impact of dementia on individuals, the importance of effective communication, and methods to improve the wellbeing of people with dementia. Upon successful completion, learners will receive a certificate in dementia care that can be downloaded or printed.

In the UK alone, there are currently 850,000 people suffering from dementia, and this number is expected to increase to over one million by 2025. Caring for someone with dementia can be challenging and stressful. However, with the right support, it can be rewarding and satisfying. To avoid issues and misunderstandings that could negatively impact your organization, ensure that your staff handle dementia patients in a sensitive and understanding manner.
