Certificate Course In Dementia Care

Dementia Care refers to a deterioration in cognitive ability that is significant enough to disrupt daily activities. It is not a distinct illness, but rather a set of symptoms that may stem from various underlying conditions.

The online medical course sessions cover a wide variety of themes, such as understanding dementia, diagnosis, caring for people with the condition, and legal issues. Interactive features, such as images, case studies, self-assessment questions, and video clips, help learners understand the complex challenges faced by people with dementia, their families, and carers.

During the program, you will look in particular at the psychological and emotional impact of the condition. You will also examine the importance of providing person-centered care that reflects the needs of the individual.

Topics covered include:

  • understanding dementia
  • supporting people to live well in the condition
  • communicating with people affected
  • supporting families
  • end-of-life care

The learning content includes video interviews that feature people living with the condition and their families talking about their experiences. Interactive exercises give you the chance to reflect on your learning and consider the role you can play in improving care.
