General:

In 2018, there is an estimated 436,366 Australians living with dementia. Without a medical breakthrough, the number of people with dementia is expected to increase to 589,807 by 2028 and 1,076,129 by 2058! With these scary statistics, we all need to understand more about how to deal with this devastating disability.

The Support People with Dementia Certificate is designed to teach you proven ways to best care for ageing family and friends or clients within the age care sector.  This short course will improve soft skills like communication, problem-solving, and conflict resolution.

More Content. More Skills. More Value.

This online course will provide you with an understanding of how to effectively support a person living with dementia. You will develop an understanding of the nature of dementia, and appropriate support strategies for people living with dementia.

You will also develop an understanding of how dementia can influence a person’s behaviour, and how you should respond to dementia-related behaviours of concern appropriately.

Finally, you will look in detail at appropriate strategies for communicating with people with dementia, and the importance of planning and providing meaningful activities when supporting a person with dementia.
