About the Course:

A one day course for health and social care staff supporting adults with a learning disability where a diagnosis of dementia is being considered.

This one day course will provide staff supporting adults with a learning disability with the skills to understand the importance of recognising possible signs of the onset of dementia and the need to take a differential diagnosis approach – is it, in fact, dementia or what other possible causes of changes in individuals’ functioning and wellbeing need to be considered? You will then learn practical strategies to ensure that individuals are well supported and their changing care needs are addressed.
