Course Outline

Originally developed for the Care Quality Commission (CQC) to train their inspectors, A Mile in My Shoes is our Dementia Awareness course. We’ve developed this CPD accredited course as an introduction to dementia and a basic level dementia training course for care services which is mapped to the Dementia Training Standards Framework.

With our range of Dementia Training Courses, our main aim is to gain a full and deep understanding of people with dementia.

Delivered by our experienced trainers through interactive exercises, videos and group work, learners will build a deeper understanding of dementia by covering topics such as “What is Dementia?”, Diagnosing Dementia, Understanding How Our Brain Works and will explore the holistic needs of a person with dementia in our “Are All Needs Being Met?” module.
