Dementia Skilled

Recent research by UCL has shed light on the growing threat of dementia, projecting that it could impact 1.7 million individuals in England and Wales by 2040. But despite this there’s still a lack of accessible information and training on this devastating illness.

We’ve drawn inspiration from the Scottish government’s Dementia Skilled Practice Level to create an advanced course for those who are passionate about delving deeper into the world of dementia. For those looking to grasp the fundamentals, we also offer a foundational “Dementia Awareness” course.

Our Dementia Skilled course delves into the intricacies of this illness, its various forms, and how we can provide the best support for individuals affected by it. Our ultimate goal is to help these individuals lead fuller, more independent lives while preserving their dignity for as long as possible. The course also focuses on guiding families and caregivers in this important journey, equipping them with the knowledge and skills they need.

Acquired Brain Injury Advanced

Acquired Brain Injury (ABI) is a life-altering condition with a variety of causes, including traumatic events, strokes, infections, and more. However, many individuals working in healthcare, nursing, and caregiving still grapple with the complexities surrounding ABI. This knowledge gap inspired us to offer a course that builds on our more foundational ABI module.

Our “Acquired Brain Injury Advanced” course is the result of a collaborative effort with nurse subject matter experts. It delves deep into how ABI impacts individuals and, just as crucially, the support and care they require. It also explores the ripple effect of ABI on the lives of friends and family. 

The ABI Advanced course covers everything from the root causes of ABI to the multifaceted rehabilitation strategies and support systems that can significantly improve the quality of life for those affected by this condition. Whether you’re a healthcare professional seeking to expand your expertise, a caregiver in search of invaluable insights, or someone personally touched by ABI, this course equips you with the knowledge and skills to navigate these challenges.
