One Day Dementia Training


Our one day dementia training is open to all health, social care and wider public services staff in Gloucestershire, including those in the voluntary and independent sector, and people who are caring for a person with dementia.

Course Dates for 2021:

In response to Covid-19 the team have created an online/virtual training session for the One Day Dementia training, delivered in two morning workshops using Microsoft Teams: 9:15am – 1.00pm, participants are required to attend both sessions:

  • 9th & 16th February
  • 23rd February & 2nd March
  • 9th & 16th March
  • 23rd & 30th March

Participants will examine dementia and the changing brain; consider different types of dementia and symptoms; gain an understanding of the principles of person-centred care and how to approach and communicate with people living with dementia.

Learning Outcomes:

  • Describe dementia and the changing brain
  • Consider the different symptoms.
  • Understand the factors that can influence communication and interaction.
  • Support individuals with communication and interaction difficulties.
  • Understand the principles of person centred care

Preparation for the course

Whilst we are running the virtual training it is a good idea to have a practice session on Microsoft Teams prior to the course to make sure you can access without a glitch on the morning of the course.  Please check with the team.

It is advisable that you complete the e-learning course before attending the One Day Dementia Training Programme.  Free to access for anyone living or working in Gloucestershire. Please contact to request registration.
