Ask any expert in the field of Alzheimer’s disease and he or she will tell you that there are as many variations of how Alzheimer’s disease is expressed as there are people with the disease. Personality, life experience and variations in the effects on the brain all contribute to the individual differences, but there are also some typical patterns.
This course begins by providing brief explanations of various forms of dementia, common losses and remaining strengths. It then explains how to use that knowledge for more effective interactions related to activities with people with dementia. The overall aim is to empower the activity staff to provide the best quality of life for people living with dementia.
This course involves downloading and studying the PDF Course Material and then, when ready, answering a range of questions online. Upon successful completion of these questions you will receive a downloadable certificate.
You can enrol several members of staff at your home individually (each individual would have to pay and enrol separately) but you can also create a Group, allocate a Group Leader and then he/she can place the order online for multiple users and they would be the main contact for your Group.
Please check the ‘Group’ option to enable you to enrol and pay for multiple users. If buying access to more than one course you must choose a different ‘Group Name’ for each course. On completion of payment you will be allocated the number of course places based on your quantity purchased. As Group Leader you will then be able to manage your Group(s), add users etc via the Groups Dashboard and staff will receive login details to undertake the course.
