What will I learn?

Dementia affects around 820,000 people in the UK. This figure is likely to rise to one million by 2025 and two million by 2051. It is one of the main causes of disability in later life and with research being desperately underfunded, it costs the UK over £26 billion a year. Understanding dementia and the person-centred care that is required is fundamental to high quality care.

Unit 1 - Dementia Awareness
Unit 2 - The Person-Centred Approach to the Care and Support of Individuals with Dementia
Unit 3 - Understand the Factors That Can Influence Communication and Interaction with Individuals who have Dementia
Unit 4 - Understand Equality, Diversity and Inclusion in Dementia Care
