There are hundreds of thousands of people living with dementia in the UK alone, and this number is estimated to rise to 2 million by 2050. Dementia comes in many types and can progress at different rates. The support needs of a person with dementia can be vastly different as no two individuals are affected in the same way, regardless of whether their diagnosis is the same.
This course, developed by approved CPD provider and healthcare training specialists Espirita, is designed for any staff working with dementia sufferers in a health or social care setting. Learners will gain an understanding of what dementia is, how it can be managed and gather a greater awareness of the sensitive issues faced by these individuals and their families.
