Dementia Awareness

Dementia is used to describe the symptoms that occur when the brain is affected by specific diseases and conditions. Dementia is a chronic progressive problem of cognition - which is failure of the brain’s functions. It affects people at different stages of life, it affects different parts of the brain and it affects it at different speeds.

As someone’s dementia progresses, their cognitive (mental) abilities will decline, which will affect their ability to make their own decisions. When this happens, carers, family and health and social care professionals will need to become more involved in the decision-making process. This course will provide you with the confidence to deal with these situations.
