Introduction to Dementia
“A reflection of the growing numbers of older people in the population is an increase in the number of people living with dementia. In Northern Ireland it is estimated there are currently 21,000 people living with dementia and it is predicted that this figure will increase to 60,000 by 2052. Learning about dementia and how to best respond to someone with dementia is essential for all health & social care staff and family carers. Improved understanding of dementia should improve the quality of the health and social care interaction as well as care received by a person living with dementia. This short course will highlight what is meant by the term dementia, understanding conditions that cause dementia, know why receiving a diagnosis is important, recognise that each individual is unique, as well as touching on issues such as communication, behaviour, stress and distress. The workshop supports the outcomes of the Dementia Learning & Development Framework.
