POSITIVE DEMENTIA CARE FOR DOMICILIARY WORKERS LEVEL 2
Dementia itself is not a single disease or illness, but is an umbrella term used to describe lots of different types of conditions, all of which have one thing in common - they attack and destroy the cells in the brains of people with a dementia.
To provide good quality care, care workers need to recognise people with a dementia as individuals. A key aspect of being a domiciliary dementia care worker is the ability to look beyond the dementia and instead, see the whole person.
This course looks at the meaning of person-centred care. The starting point as a care worker is to imagine how it would feel to have a dementia. By doing this, you will develop an increased feeling of empathy – putting yourself in someone else’s shoes. This will enable you to see that people with a dementia are no different to any of us; they still feel as we feel. As a care worker, it is important to understand the world of people with a dementia. This world is the same as ours but dementia can make it feel muddled at times.
