This module is a core module in the award and provides learners with the background knowledge and understanding of dementia that is required in order to begin working with elders suffering with dementia. The module encourages learners to examine their own assumptions and beliefs about ageing and dementia as a basis for engaging in a person-centred care and education approach. Building on the cognitive screening in MD2 learners will develop engagement plans as an approach to social and emotional engagement with individuals with dementia, in a prepared environment.
