A quick reminder that there are three dementia awareness eLearning modules developed by Alzheimer’s Society available to the Age UK Network until July 2022.
This is a quick reminder that there are three dementia awareness eLearning modules available to the Age UK Network. Whether you work directly with those living with dementia or not, we hope this eLearning will help to equip Age UK staff and volunteers with the skills and confidence to communicate with people living with dementia, face to face and virtually. Currently the Age UK Network’s access to these modules will end this July, so find out all the details below.
The three eLearning modules are:
- Understanding dementia
- Engaging with people in the early stages of dementia
- Responding to distressed behaviours
Who can complete the Dementia eLearning?
All modules are open to everyone, all staff, and volunteers. Every learner will receive a certificate upon completion.
How were these modules developed?
These new modules were developed by Alzheimer’s Society.
When should I complete the modules?
Currently the Age UK Network’s access will end at the start of July 2022, so best to complete them sooner rather than later!
Please note, it may take up to one hour for the course to be marked as completed and for you to receive the certificate in your inbox. We thank you in advance for your patience.
How long is each module?
Each module takes approximately 45 minutes to complete. Once you start, you can save any progress and come back to it.
How do I access these modules?
If you already have an eLearning account, this course will automatically appear under the “learning” section of your dashboard in the eLearning site. You can access it straight away and no action is needed.
