Learn ways to support people with communication difficulties and recognise the importance of effective communication.

We know dementia has a massive impact on a person’s communication. It can take away an individual’s formal speech production, commonly leaving people without verbal communication. It also affects a way person can understand and process language. Even everyday familiar language can be difficult for a person with dementia to interpret, and sometimes can leave them feeling upset, frustrated, and confused. This course will help carers and staff how dementia impacts on specific areas of the brain and how that may cause challenges. This course helps you look at effective ways to support people with communication difficulties and recognise the importance of effective communication. Another main talking point of the course will be understanding how and why people with dementia use behaviour as a form of communication.
