"Excellent, not done an online curse for a few years so it was very easy for me. I came across it by chance on Google searching for online courses. Very good never had any issues with speed. Don't change if it works for others and then that's good. Very easy to log on and really liked that it saved or for you. I've spoken to Karen from the Support Team, very nice lady. Gave me a good basic understanding of dementia exactly what it was designed to do. I will look forward to completing another course with you. Again very good."

Dementia Care Course
The course prompts you to think about whether supporting them with informed choices on their level of understanding would help to positively enable them to make everyday decisions that they otherwise struggle with, rather than simply 'take over' and do it for them. Taking over may cause the person to lose confidence, resulting in them coping less well. This medical & care training course, provided by Dorset Chamber Training based in Pool & Dorset, is accessible at anytime online from an internet connected device, such as a computer, tablet or smart phone.
The course explains how Dementia can be a distressing condition, particularly as a person's abilities deteriorate. Not only can this cause embarrassment for the person with dementia but it can cause upset and frustration and even embarrassment for their family, friends and carers. This can result in having further emotional impact on the person with dementia. Therefore it is important for others to have support in developing their own coping strategies.
