Training

Our team in Northern Ireland can meet all your dementia training needs, whether through one of our established courses or by designing something more bespoke.

Flagship Courses

Four of our courses have become our most popular across health, social care, housing and acute care. Each offers an ideal evidence-based approach to the subject area, with clear learning outcomes and proven practical value across all professional groups.

  • Aspiring to Excellence – DSDC’s most popular management and leadership development programme
  • Assessment of Memory – practical skills development in memory assessment
  • Best Practice – nationally-recognised core programme for staff working in care setting using a validated cascade model
  • Meaningful Activities – the essential course for anyone involved in organising activities for people with dementia

Bespoke Training

We also work closely with clients on designing and delivering training just for them. Bespoke Training has already worked well for small and larger organisations in Northern Ireland.

Specialist knowledge on dementia is the foundation of all that DSDC does, but it can deliver much more than “dementia-specialist” training. So it is best to contact us to see if we can meet your needs.
