Living Well with Dementia

Dementia is caused by a number of diseases that affect the brain. The most common is Alzheimer’s but there are many different types of dementia, which affect the brain at different rates and in different ways.

The aim of this course is to provide you with facts about dementia, common symptoms, treatments available, and techniques that will help you to cope with the effects of dementia. The course will also help carers, family members and professionals understand people’s experiences of living with dementia and find out what support is available.

By the end of this course, you will learn about:

  • The impact of the environment on dementia and what support is available to help you maintain independence e.g. tele-care
  • Cognitive coping strategies e.g. coping with forgetting
  • Emotional coping strategies e.g. managing stress and feelings associated with dementia
  • The importance of maintaining supportive relationships and networks in your local community
  • Planning for the future
  • Research around dementia and how to get involved.
