Introduction

Dementia, largely disregarded by medical researchers in the past, is now the subject of multiple public and commercial research initiatives across the globe, with efforts being made to find cause factors, preventive measures, treatments, and possible cures. Over 44 million people globally are thought to be affected by dementia, making it one of the most important health concerns. However, dementia is often confused with the natural mental degradation caused by age. This is not true. Dementia is caused by brain illnesses that affect memory and thinking. These disorders and diseases impact a person’s thinking, memory, logic, personality, mood, and behavior. As a result, an individual may become unable to perform everyday functions like making tea, navigating the house, etc. Unfortunately, an estimated 50% of adults over 85 have dementia. There is currently no cure for the disease, so understanding the primary signs and prognoses of dementia is crucial to look after loved ones struggling with the disease. And that’s where this course comes in. This course aims to enhance the well-being and interactions of both carers and dementia patients. We also aim to increase dementia awareness and talk about ways we can make life easier for people with dementia.

We’ll look at the following in this course:

  • The types of dementia
  • Symptoms of dementia
  • Stages of dementia
  • Caring for people with dementia
  • The role of technology in caregiving.

This course will help you not only recognize dementia patients but will also enable you to learn how to look after them correctly. Since caregivers already have a lot on their hands, we believe that technology can play an important role in assisting a caregiver. So, the role of technology in caregiving will also be discussed. Ultimately, the quality of the care you provide can greatly affect the quality of life a person with dementia will experience. And we want to provide people with dementia with the best care possible.
