Award in Awareness of Dementia – Level 3

Dementia is a mental disorder that stems from a decline or loss of memory power or other thinking skills, making day to day activities very challenging. Most of the dementia cases are progressive and have no cure or treatment. However, your healthcare professional might put you on medications to improve your symptoms, which is why it is important to detect dementia sooner to get the appropriate treatment. This Award in Awareness of Dementia – Level 3 has been formulated exactly for this purpose and is suitable for anyone within an interest in the subject.

This comprehensive course will thoroughly enlighten you on dementia to help you understand its process and symptoms. You will then get to explore the person-centred approaches to administering medication for individuals with dementia, followed by modules that will guide you on how to communicate and interact with people who have dementia.

This awareness program will also help you comprehend the diversity of people with dementia and the importance of practicing inclusion with them to make them feel accepted. By the end of this course, you will walk away with valuable knowledge that will ease your interaction with people who has dementia.

The course has been endorsed under the ABC Awards and Certa Awards Quality Licence Scheme. This means that Global Edulink* has undergone an external quality check to ensure that the organisation and the courses it offers, meet defined quality criteria.
