Dementia Awareness (Train the Trainer)

Delegates will consider key aspects of Dementia and the effects on those who suffer with this disease and best current practice for care. As with all of all of our Train the Trainer courses we will provide tuition on training methods suitable for in-house training of the organisations own staff.
