Benefits of Behaviours that challenge in dementia Training

Training on behaviours that challenge in dementia, we need to know that unfortunately, distress behaviour is not generally like an infection which can be treated by a short-term course of antibiotics. In many cases there will be no "magic bullets", change may take some time (especially where the behaviour is well established), will almost certainly require changes in the way other people behave and may be very susceptible to relapse. Having said all this, there is a great deal that can be done to prevent and treat distress behaviour.

Who Will Benefit?

This 3 hour course is ideal for all healthcare and social care staff who are involved in supporting individuals with dementia who display behaviours that challenge in dementia.

Course Description:

To provide healthcare support workers and adult social care workers to understand the first point to make is that there is no simple answer. However it is helpful to remember, that most people without dementia display lots of distress behaviour as the disease progresses.

In general then, many cases of distress behaviour appear to be effective ways for a person with dementia to control what is going on around them. This may reflect their lack of more usual methods of control and the more unusual nature of the environments to which they are exposed.

Claire Edwards (March 2021)
This course was very well received by our social care staff. Comments included that the course would be even better delivered over 4 hours due to the nature and volume of content (which the trainer has echoed and therefore future delivery will be extended to 4 hours). The trainer is both personable and extremely knowledgeable, making the course both informative and interactive throughout. We are in the process of booking further dates for the coming months.
