Dementia training

SCIE’s dementia awareness training improves understanding for a range of health and social care staff

Staff who deal directly with members of the public, whether in a care home or at the front desk of a GP’s surgery, need to be aware of the impact that dementia can have on people and tailor their communication accordingly.

SCIE offers awareness training for all staff working in statutory, voluntary and private organisations involved in the provision of care and health services.

SCIE’s dementia awareness training focuses on communication, underpinned by a person-centered approach which ensures the person with dementia is treated with dignity and understanding.

Training packages are flexible from a half day to a full day session, depending on the level required, enabling staff to develop good practice in supporting people with dementia.
