Course Outline

Originally developed for the Care Quality Commission (CQC) to train their inspectors, A Mile in My Shoes is our Dementia Awareness course. As a result, care services can now align their dementia training and learning with their regulator.

A Mile in My Shoes is delivered through interactive exercises, videos and group work to  build a deeper understanding of dementia.

People living with dementia may experience the world around them differently.  Therefore, small changes that we make, can make a big difference.  Attendees will learn to walk a mile in the shoes of a person living with dementia and explore ways to support people who are living with these changes.

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

On completion delegates will be able to:

  • separate the facts from fiction and see each experience as unique to the individual
  • identify the impact of neurological impairment on the person
  • understand how our memory works and appreciate how our past can shape our future
  • identify how dementia can affect the perception of the environment
  • recognise that the reality for people living with dementia is likely to be different from our own
  • understand how dementia can affect our senses
  • appreciate ways of connecting with a person with dementia and to recognise how our own actions can affect the way a person connects with us
  • recognise different ways of communicating
