What is dementia?

Dementia is not a disease in itself. Dementia is a word used to describe a group of symptoms that occur when brain cells stop working properly.

This happens inside specific areas of the brain, which can affect how you think, remember and communicate. Alzheimer’s disease is the most common cause of dementia, but there are other types of dementia too. It is possible to have more than one type of dementia at the same time. Alzheimer’s is sometimes seen with vascular dementia or dementia with Lewy bodies. You might hear this called ‘mixed dementia’.

Why is dementia awareness training important?

Dementia awareness training provides an opportunity for a greater understanding of dementia and enables trained staff to build relationships and offer practical help through person centred care. By taking our dementia awareness training course, you will refresh your existing knowledge of Dementia and ensure you have relevant, up to date information to provide essential support and care to dementia sufferers and their families.
