Overview of The Principles of Dementia Care

Qualification objectives

This qualification covers areas such as person-centred care, the influence of positive communication methods, issues relating to the use of medication for those with dementia and the importance of providing appropriate activities.

Dementia affects around 820,000 people in the UK

This figure is likely to rise to one million by 2025 and two million by 2051. It is one of the main causes of disability in later life and with research being desperately underfunded, it costs the UK over £26 billion a year. 

Understanding dementia and the person-centred care that is required is fundamental to high-quality care.
