One in a Million: Dementia training resource

12 March 2019
Social Care Wales

We’ve developed a free dementia training package to help those who work with people with dementia.

In Wales, there are an estimated 45,000 people who currently live with dementia. That’s larger than the population of Llanelli.

We know there are probably many more people living with dementia and that this number is likely to grow in the coming years.

One in a Million is a two-and-a-half hour, classroom-based training session that builds on the Dementia Friends training. It will give staff across your organisation a better understanding of dementia and its different forms.

Staff will also learn practical tips about improving the day-to-day experiences of people with dementia. The package includes guidance notes and video to support the facilitator.

We’ve created the training resource to meet the learning and development topics for ‘informed’ people (under the definition of Good Work: A dementia learning and development framework for Wales).

This resource was developed by Cofio Dementia Training in partnership with the sector and has been endorsed by Alzheimer’s Society UK and the Office of the Older Peoples Commissioner for Wales.

Watch the video below to find out what staff at a care home thought about the dementia training package.
