About This Course

The purpose of this Course on dementia is to improve your clinical practice when working with people with dementia.  It seeks to do this by considering seven distinct but interrelated areas that, collectively, will give you a greater degree of awareness of dementia and what you can do to help.  These units seek to address the following questions:

  • What is it like for someone to have dementia?
  • What exactly is dementia?
  • What should our practice be like?
  • Can we communicate with people with dementia?  If so, how?
  • What can we do to help people with dementia?
  • How can we help family and friends caring for a loved one with dementia?
  • What are the legal and ethical issues of working with people with dementia?
