Dementia training course for non-clinical staff
This course provides training for non-clinical staff who come into daily contact with people living with dementia – such as hospital receptionists and other staff. It will help attendees to understand the needs of people with dementia and how they can communicate more effectively.
Our CPD-accredited course will support staff to better meet the needs of people living with dementia. It covers:
- common signs and symptoms of the different types of dementia
- myths and assumptions about dementia
- the impact of dementia and how an individual copes with ordinary situations
