What is dementia?

The word ‘dementia’ describes a set of symptoms that may include memory loss and difficulties with thinking, problem-solving or language. These changes are often small to start with, but for someone with dementia they have become severe enough to affect daily life. A person with dementia may also experience changes in their mood or behaviour.

Dementia is caused when the brain is damaged by diseases, such as Alzheimer’s disease or a series of strokes. Alzheimer’s disease is the most common cause of dementia, but not the only one. The specific symptoms that someone with dementia experiences will depend on the parts of the brain that are damaged and the disease that is causing the dementia. This comprehensive dementia awareness e-learning course explains what dementia is, including the causes and symptoms, and how it is diagnosed and treated. It also looks at some of the different types of dementia and how to support people with dementia.

Why is dementia awareness training important?

Caring for a loved one with dementia poses many challenges for families and carers. People with dementia from conditions such as Alzheimer’s and related diseases have a progressive brain disorder that makes it more and more difficult for them to remember things, think clearly, communicate with others, or take care of themselves. In addition, dementia can cause mood swings and even change a person’s personality and behaviour.

While developing this understanding dementia course, we knew all too well that working with dementia clients can be challenging, but it’s also be very rewarding. Providing specialist dementia training for health and social care workers makes a huge difference, in the following ways:

    • It explains the biological components of dementia care (anatomy/physiology of the brain and differing dementias)
    • It helps them to understand how dementia affects the client and their family.
    • It enables carers to prepare for the unexpected in advance and how to deal with it when it comes
    • It minimises the risks for clients, their families and for carers in dealing with challenging behaviour, such as wandering, agitation or paranoia
    • It allows for the development of a person-centred approach in dementia care
    • It educates the carer on the changing needs along the continuum of the dementia journey

What is the UK's ‘Core Skills Training Framework’ (CSTF)?

There is increasing recognition that there are wide variations in the quality and consistency of healthcare training provided across the UK. To minimise these challenges, The Mandatory Training Group works with various UK health and social care organisations to develop statutory and mandatory training courses in line with Skills for Health’s UK Core Skills Training Framework (CSTF).

This includes mandatory training courses in the Skills for Health’s UK Core Skills Training Framework – CSTF Statutory Mandatory Training Subject Guide Version 1.3 , Skills for Health Clinical Care UK Core Skills Training Framework Subject Guide April 2015 and other awareness courses for health and social care workers.

This online understanding dementia training course was developed in line with the CSTF learning outcomes.
