Dementia is a general term for a decline in mental ability severe enough to interfere with daily life. Memory loss is an example. There are currently 850,000 people with dementia in the UK, more than ever before, and this number is projected to increase. Due to the gradual nature of dementia, the mild early-stage symptoms and the low diagnosis rate, it is difficult to know the exact number of people living with the condition. Cotswold Friends have a significant number of clients living with dementia and this training course will help you understand more about the different types of dementia and how it may affect people in their daily lives. You will also learn techniques for positive communication. The course is run by Mary Jones, a Psychotherapist with over 20 years experience working in the NHS.
