Dementia Program for Carers – Session 2

$33.00 incl. GST   (AU$)

This program is to assist PCWs – AINs by aligning their knowledge and skills with the updated 2013 skills and knowledge of person centred dementia care for RNs and ENs.

NOTE: Facilities (and groups of nurses working from the same facility) receive a discount of 25% on registrations of 5 or more, 40% discount on registrations of 15 or more, 50% discount on 15 or more and 60% on 20 or more!

PCWs/AINs are likely to be responsible for most of the direct care of residents and clients with a dementia, and therefore more likely to be involved in reportable incidents of any description.

As part of the OH&S and risk management strategy of any aged care service, evidence of contemporary knowledge and practices by all care staff, of clients with a dementia, is a primary requirement. This is particularly so in relation to the management of ‘behaviours’.


Session 2 – the brain and how dementia develops

  • a diagrammatic demonstration of how Alzheimer’s causes the signs and symptoms of dementia; how care staff will know that a resident/client has some damage in the brain and how they should respond


The program is delivered through our virtual classroom, with each session being recorded ‘archived’

Delivery suggestions for groups

  • We recommend the program, where possible, is set up as group sessions, through your TV or data projector
  • staff who cannot make the group sessions can have access to the recorded ‘archived’ sessions at times to suit
  • each group should be facilitated by a RN, as ENs cannot not direct care to PCW/AINs
