The Dementia Care Training Library: A Complete Resource for Developing Person-Centred Skills and Approaches is an encyclopedia on delivering dementia care. The Starter Pack is a ring binder, containing two core modules on the lived experience of dementia and dealing with behaviour that challenges in person-centred ways.
Module 5 looks at why maintaining good physical, mental and oral health through food, drink and healthy living activities should be part of every person-centred support package.
Throughout 2023-2024 twelve modules will be added to The Dementia Care Training Library. The add on modules are provided as loose-leaf pages to add to the Starter pack ring binder.
All modules and content is mapped to the most recent Department of Health Dementia Standards Training Framework. The training materials take an Action Learning approach. This means a balance of information and practice-based activities. It allows learners to reflect on and apply new knowledge in real time as a team, which in turn leads to improved practice in care.
