The Dementia Care Training Library: Starter Pack – A Complete Resource for Developing Person-Centred Skills and Approaches is an encyclopedia on dementia care. The Starter Pack is a ring binder, containing 3 core modules on the lived experience of dementia and dealing with behaviour that challenges in person-centred ways.
The Dementia Care Training Library enables professionals working in relevant care services to deliver in-house training. The Starter Pack is expandable, and over time more modules will be available. All modules and content is mapped to the most recent Department of Health Dementia Standards Training Framework.
The training materials take an Action Learning approach. This means a balance of information and practice-based activities. It allows learners to reflect on and apply new knowledge in real time as a team, which in turn leads to improved practice in care.
