Dementia care in a community setting

This module is designed for dementia specialists and champions who support people who are living with dementia and their families in a variety of community based settings including care homes, domiciliary care, housing, intermediate care and community. For further information and details of when the module will be delivered please see the flyer.

The focus of the module is to encourage person-centred approaches across systems to improve and enhance the experience of the person living with dementia, their family and carers. This will be achieved through increasing knowledge and understanding of dementia within staff groups, exploration of how to meet the needs of people with dementia, empowering staff to work with colleagues and carers to support the person living with dementia within their own home or other community and to provide leadership and strategic focus around the challenges and opportunities of providing dignity and choice for the person living with dementia within the community setting.

This module can be taken on its own or in combination with another module to gain an Advanced Diploma in Dementia Care.
