Dementia Academy

How will it Help?

Public awareness of Dementia is high but understanding about it is still poor. The work of the academy will achieve a greater local understanding of the needs of people with dementia. Everyone who has direct contact with a person with dementia will have the opportunity to undertake some basic awareness training and this is increased in intensity according to need and speciality. It will also provide carers with the education and training about living well with dementia.

We expect our health and social care systems and local communities to change to reflect and meet the needs of people with dementia. Help will be provided at the right time for people with dementia from staff who have a good understanding of dementia and can deliver person centred care.
