This course describes the presentation and progression of dementia. It explores risk factors, early warning signs, symptoms and care strategies. Woven through the course is a review of the associated impact of caregiving and how you as a professional can identify stress and provide caregiver support.
The entire course is anchored in a person-centered approach to care which includes the individual and their care partner and focuses first and foremost on people as individuals.
Throughout the course you are asked to apply your learning to an ongoing case study.
