The Dementia Interpreter community edition video online course is exclusive to ProTrainings.(Training2care)

Dementia is a word that everyone knows, and for most of us, this word is feared. As with many things, we believe this is due to the lack of knowledge and understanding of dementia and this means that most people are just not prepared for it. You can help change this lack of knowledge and help shape the future of dementia care.

Throughout this video online course, you will complete multiple modules on various topics including definitions, communication, changes that can be made, body language, and more. There are also experiential training modules and finally a summary and conclusion that will make you understand that completing the course is just the start of your journey.

We want you to see what it is like to experience the difficulties people with dementia have. We take away the ability to speak, see, hear, and use body language to force people to find new ways of communicating, just like those with dementia must. It is not easy but the first-hand experience of feeling the same isolation, frustration, and anxiety as those that have dementia is key to understanding that communication is at the very heart of dementia care.

Completing the course means that you will become a registered Dementia Interpreter Level 1. You get access to the Dementia Interpreters forum where you create your profile to start your journey on helping translate the Language of Dementia.

TO ENROL CANDIDATES PLEASE SEND AN EMAIL TO caishyfforddiant@gwynedd.llyw.cymru  noting DEMENTIA INTERPRETERS in subject area, and the e.mail address of the candidate you wish to enrol.

There is no cost for the level 1 award, once candidates have been enrolled we can also provide you with progress updates if you wish, candidate reminder messages are automatically generated by the training system.

The aims of MHFA are:

  • to preserve life where a person may be a danger to themselves or others
  • to provide help to prevent the mental health problem developing into a more serious state
  • to promote the recovery of good mental health
  • to provide comfort to a person experiencing a mental health problem.

MHFA does not teach people to be therapists.  However, it does teach people:

  • how to recognise the symptoms of mental health problems
  • how to provide initial helphow to guide a person towards appropriate professional help

Other Information

Before you go on the bus there is a short medical questionnaire for you to complete

Comment from a worker who attended a previous session :

“HAVING a dad who was diagnosed with early-onset Alzheimer’s in his 50s, I thought I had a reasonable understanding of the disease and how it affects those who have it.

But having taken part in a virtual dementia tour led by training2care, I realised I actually knew very little about the fears and limitations faced by those with the condition.
