Alzheimer’s Calgary - Dementia Basics

Click to rate

Alzheimer’s Calgary has produced a Dementia Basics e-learning resource, divided into six user-friendly sections. 

The sections give an outline of what is meant by the term ‘dementia’, how the brain is affected and the common symptoms associated with different types of dementia.

The importance of treating the patient as a unique individual is also highlighted. There is also a helpful section outlining simple techniques we can all use to help keep our brains healthy.

Audio visual material and text, together with quizzes, are used to help reinforce learning. A certificate can be printed off once all sections are completed.

Please note that within the resources section the information is specific to the Calgary community.
