What Will You Learn?
There is a significant lack of readily-available education on dementia for those providing care, be they a family member or in some cases students and practising care givers. This course provides a thorough understanding of all aspects of this complex subject.
Caring for an individual with symptoms of dementia is challenging. It’s even harder if you don’t fully understand the condition. With this in mind, the course shares basic information about the different types of dementia, the causes, and the common risk factors that contribute to its development in an individual.
You will learn how to spot the onset of dementia and how a diagnosis is determined. You will also discover how it damages the brain; what the cognitive, functional, behavioural and emotional changes that can occur are, and what treatments can be used to slow progression.
‘Person-centered care’ brings focus to the needs and preferences of an individual with dementia, in a respectful and responsive way. It also considers the values of the person and their family in all aspects of decision making. You will discover more about this type of care in this course.
To communicate effectively with those who have dementia requires respect, inclusiveness, and a thorough understanding of effective communication strategies. You need to adapt to continue meaningful communication throughout each phase of dementia. The Dementia Awareness Diploma Course explains how to do this, along with guidance on how to overcome even the most challenging of communication barriers..
As a caregiver, you need to encompass the role by learning how to manage chronic and intermittent medical conditions, monitor psychological changes, and provide a level of personal care that may be outside of your current comfort zone. You will also have to manage your own, and the sufferer’s family’s, expectations of the care that can be provided a family member.

Das Beste: I have to say I was skeptical as Wicca is a spiritual practice and I didnt imagine it could be taught. I was wrong. This course has been absolutely amazing. They are touching upon things I never would have thought of or been able to learn had I not signed up for this course.
