The Dementia Care Training Library is a unique modular suite of person-centred, dementia-specific content designed to enable professionals working in relevant care services to deliver in-house training. The foundation Starter Pack provides core introductory modules on dementia awareness and challenging behaviour, enabling care staff to recognise the unique identity and life story of every individual with dementia and to respond to challenging behaviour in appropriate, person-centred ways. The Starter Pack is expandable, and over time further modules will become available for sale. All Dementia Care Training Library materials take an Action Learning approach, providing a balance of information and practice-based activities that allow learners to reflect on and apply new knowledge in real time as a staff team, and which ultimately lead to changes in practice in the care environment.
