Dementia affects around 820,000 people in the UK. This figure is likely to rise to one million by 2025 and two million by 2051. It is one of the main causes of disability in later life and with research being desperately underfunded, it costs the UK over £26 billion a year. Understanding dementia and the person-centred care that is required is fundamental to high quality care.
This distance learning level 2 qualification in Principles of Dementia Care will focus on awareness of dementia and the care and support that should be received by individuals with dementia.
The qualification will be completed remotely with support from a Tutor in up-to 12 weeks.
