Bridging the Dementia Divide: Supporting People Living with Dementia

The World Health Organisation (WHO) estimates there are currently 35.6 million people living with dementia, a number which will double by 2030 and triple by 2050 (WHO, 2012). Dementia has already had a significant impact on society, and this will only increase.

It is important to understand the challenges of living with dementia as well as understanding the importance of providing the correct care for people with dementia.

This course will look at the global challenge of dementia. It focuses on integrative collaboration and partnership working to reduce barriers between services and provide seamless care for people living with dementia.
