This one day course is for social workers, care managers and occupational therapists involved in assessing the needs of people living with dementia and their carers. Prior to attending this course you will already have an understanding of dementia and its psycho-social impact upon individuals and may have attended the Dementia Basic awareness course. The Dementia Advanced skills course offers some of the same material but is primarily for those who are working longer term with people with dementia. This course will equip all those involved in assessing the needs of people living with dementia and their carers to undertake person-centred needs assessments.
Participants will be expected to have read:A Manual for good social practice practice: supporting adults who have dementia
