What’s covered during the day?

People living with dementia are often also living without any real understanding of their condition from those who support and care for them. This leads to approaches that actually make their situation even more confusing. This workshop will explore the most common variants of dementia, along with commonly associated symptoms to help show the learner why a person might be behaving in a certain way. The workshop will also explore the mature of memory impairment and how it then affects a person’s behaviour. We will aim to build confidence by demonstrating a range of useful communication techniques to support a person in our care, as well as exploring how applying a person centred model will lead to a better, kinder way of caring.

Learning Outcomes?

  • Describe some of the variants of dementia
  • Understand the nature of memory impairment and how it affects behaviour
  • Demonstrate engaging communication techniques
  • Explore person centred theory that supports good dementia care
  • Apply a person centred dementia environment


Delegates will be assessed continuously throughout the session by the Tutor in order to be issued with a Certificate of Attendance.
