Dementia Awareness Workshop

Aim

The aim of this training is to increase awareness of impairments that are often associated with dementia. Dementia is NOT a natural part of aging, but an umbrella term used to describe a syndrome caused by a number of illnesses in which there is a progressive decline in several areas of brain function, including memory and the ability to carry out daily activities.

Increased awareness of how an individual is affected by dementia will assist to develop person-centred strategies that reduce risk, positively support behaviour, and enhance their quality of life to enable them to be Living Well with Dementia, in line with the National Dementia Strategy.

This workshop is a stand-alone-course that has strong links to the NAPPI Positive Behaviour Support continuum. The more staff are aware about how an individual has been affected by dementia, the more that can be done to reduce behaviour of concern and empower the adult to have a better quality of life.

Awareness Workshop Pricing:

The cost of attending the 3 hour workshop is £75 + VAT per person for the first 1 - 4 participants. The price is reduced to £60 + VAT per person for 5 - 9 participants and then further reduced to £45 + VAT per person for 10 or more participants.
