Dementia Awareness Training | Online E-learning

Learn effective diagnoses and care for people with dementia

Dementia is often a difficult disease to live with, for both patients and the people close to them. This Dementia Awareness training will help you recognise the signs of dementia, understand the effects that it can have, and provide guidance for good care.

Dementia can create many challenges for a patient, including memory loss and difficulties with thinking, language issues and physical limitations. This online dementia awareness training offers guidance across a range of key areas, designed for those who might diagnose dementia, or support a patient and their carers.

Through an interactive online course, you will be taken through all aspects of dementia care, including some interesting statistics, symptoms to look out for, information on how dementia is diagnosed, how to prioritise an individual’s needs, types of support available, and possible adaptations you can make to a person’s home and lifestyle to make everyday living easier.

What will I learn?

By the end of this Dementia Awareness training e-learning, you will be able to:

  • Identify the symptoms and causes of dementia
  • Recognise the different types of dementia
  • Support patients and maintain their independence
  • Recognise the difference between delirium and dementia
