Entry Requirements

These specialist days are aimed at staff who have already qualified, but wish to extend their understanding of dementia care.


'Living well with dementia - post-diagnostic support within the community' is one in a series of Dementia study days; reflecting an essential paradox within dementia care that although dementia is an illness, it is only by being able to understand dementia from the inside out that enables us to provide high quality care.

Participants are welcome to attend either one, some or all of the study days.
