The word ‘dementia’ describes a set of symptoms that may include memory loss and difficulties with thinking, problem-solving or language, and often changes in mood, perception or behaviour.

Our Dementia Awareness course will allow you gain an understanding on what exactly is dementia? Understand what the causes of dementia are, as well as the symptoms and treatment associated with it.

Someone in the world develops dementia every 3 seconds. There were an estimated 46.8 million people worldwide living with dementia in 2015 and this number is believed to be close to 50 million people in 2017. This number will almost double every 20 years, reaching 75 million in 2030 and 131.5 million in 2050.

The Alzheimer’s UK website has a number of informative articles covering all aspects of dementia.
