We recognise that not all people with a diagnosis of dementia show the same symptoms. Each member of our Health and Wellbeing Team has specialised training on various types of dementia and the differences between them. This ensures that they can provide care that is most appropriate and beneficial to the person receiving it.
The training covers Alzheimer’s, Vascular, Frontotemporal, Lewy Body, Korsakoff’s, Dementia with Parkinson’s and Young Onset (Early Onset) Dementia. If care is required for another type of dementia, relevant training is given to the team members who will be delivering the care. This ensures team members always have knowledge of the diagnosis and associated symptoms, as well as the skills to best manage them.
