Free dementia training package launched for carers in Wales


Social Care Wales has developed a free dementia training package for care professionals.

One in a Million is classroom-based training session that builds on the Dementia Friends training provided by Alzheimer’s Society UK.

It is hoped that the two and a half hour session will give staff across care organisations a better understanding of dementia and its different forms.

Staff will also learn practical tips about improving the day-to-day experiences of people with dementia. The package includes guidance notes and video to support the facilitator.

This resource was developed by Cofio Dementia Training in partnership with the sector and has been endorsed by Alzheimer’s Society UK and the Office of the Older Peoples Commissioner for Wales.
