Dementia Awareness

Dementia is very much in the public eye, and organisations are raising the profile of this disease in order to rid the stigmatism that surround it, and also for people to recognise the signs and symptoms earlier so that treatment can be started to slow the progress of the disease.

This demenia awareness training is 3.5 hours long. Candidates are required to complete a work book to show their understanding of the content of the course.

The course has been written with the QCF Diploma in Health and Social care and The Care Certificate in mind but covers a little more than they ask.

All candidates will recieve a certificate of attendance on completion of this course
