Company profile

Age UK Training inspires greater understanding in dementia care.

There are over 800,000 people living with dementia in the UK and this is predicted to hit one million by 2020. As the training arm of the country’s leading charity for older people, Age UK Training knows that these growing numbers bring with them new challenges, particularly when it comes to care.

Recognising the need for better support for both those living with dementia and those caring for them, Age UK Training recently launched a new dementia focused training programme, Remember Me.

Designed to encourage better understanding amongst care practitioners supporting older people living with dementia, Remember Me places participants in the shoes of a person living with dementia, providing insight into the challenges faced and offering first-hand experience to help understand what it feels like to live with the condition.

Using real case studies and practical learning methods, Remember Me is delivered by Age UK’s expert trainers. Taught via five Foundation modules, topics cover effective communication, emotional wellbeing and daily assistance, to offer an understanding of the situations that might arise when caring for someone with dementia and how professionals can best support them.

Modules can be personalised to suit the needs of different care professionals and can be spread over time. Training can also be tailored to include Age UK’s Sense of Ageing, a unique course designed to help care workers understand the way physical ageing impacts on everyday life.

National training provider, Age UK Training, has offered training and consultancy across the UK for over 60 years with a range of training topics that reflect Age UK’s expertise, innovation, creativity and vision for those in later life.
