This is the 3rd part of the Red Rock Training Dementia suite and is designed to help individuals explore the different types of behaviour and the factors that affect this behaviour in someone with a form of dementia.
Although the information contained within this course is part of the Dementia suite, it also works well as a stand-alone course to help individuals to learn how to respond in an appropriate and supportive manner to behaviour that some may find 'challenging'.
Upon completion of this course, you will:
- understand that behaviour is often used as a means of communication
- understand behaviour that some might find ‘challenging' and how to respond to this in a supportive manner
- understand why some people with dementia will need additional emotional support
We are acutely aware that this is an emotive subject for a lot of people who may be looking after people with a form of dementia and we hope that it promotes an improved understanding of the various aspects of the condition and the potential effects different forms of dementia have on people and the reasons why.
We also hope that this information will help those looking after people with a form of dementia by re-enforcing existing thought processes and good practice or possibly helping to generate some new ideas that could be useful.
