Dementia Awareness

About the Dementia Awareness Certificate

Have you ever wondered what it is like for someone to have dementia? Have you or has someone you know been personally affected by the illness? Do you want to work with dementia patients? If you answered yes to any of these questions, this could be the course for you. Gain an award with learndirect and join the fight against this life altering disease.

This home learning qualification is split between seven engaging modules. Each unit covers an important aspect of dementia which learners need to be aware of. Students will study online in their own time discovering everything from ethical and legal guidelines to effective communication. This home learning course will also investigate the different types of dementia.

Who should study this course?

This home study course is aimed at individuals who want to work with dementia patients. If you already have a career, this course may help you develop your skills. Studying dementia courses online can also be useful for people who have friends or relatives who are affected by the disease.

As with all of our courses here at learndirect, you needn’t gain any prior experience or qualifications before you apply. All we ask is that you are passionate about fighting dementia, and that you are able to access the internet to use our online platform.

What happens after the course?

On successful completion of this home study course you will have a fundamental understanding of dementia and the effects it has on people and their families. This knowledge will help you to care for people you know with dementia, or help you to develop your career in the care sector.

If you enjoyed studying with us, you may choose to embark on another distance learning dementia care course. Dementia training could even lead you towards a university education. Careers in dementia care include but are not limited to:

  • Dementia adviser
  • Support worker
  • Care assistant
