Dementia Essentials is the requisite training for anyone working with people living with dementia.

‘Dementia Essentials’ is a Commonwealth funded initiative delivered by Alzheimer’s WA on behalf of Dementia Training Australia offering fully funded education to workers who provide support to people living with dementia.

In this accredited course, you will learn how to incorporate therapeutic communication techniques; apply a person-centred approach and develop useful strategies to respond to changed behaviours.

By successfully completing this nationally recognised unit, you will gain a comprehensive knowledge of dementia and receive a formal Statement of Attainment.

On completion of this Accredited Course you will have had the opportunity to:

  • Examine the nature of dementia and its impacts
  • Learn more about person-centred care and effective communication strategies
  • Identify unmet needs and develop effective responses
  • Develop activities to promote well being
  • Anticipate workplace issues and identify the community supports and services available.
