Dementia Learning Pathway
This pathway will assist you in selecting the most appropriate course for your learning needs and career aspirations.
Alzheimer’s WA is a Registered Training Organisation with decades of experience educating and training the health care professionals and front line teams who work with those living with dementia. We believe dementia is a human experience rather than just a biological condition. Our philosophy of care is rooted in a commitment to a person-centred approach and practice. This is reflected in all of our education and training.
Alzheimer’s WA offers a large range of workshops to support your organisation to become dementia experts. Our workshops are tailored to empower your staff with knowledge of best practice person-centred dementia care and support. We can work with you to meet your organisational needs and time frames, and can provide training at your premises or in our own training facility.
Dementia Change Champions Program
The Dementia Champions Program assists staff in gaining knowledge, skills, information and materials to support the development of a person-centred approach in community services for people living with dementia who access them.
The ‘We’ in Dementia – Innovation in Dementia Practice Symposium
The ‘We’ in Dementia Symposium, hosted by Alzheimer’s WA, invites you to be challenged and nourished in your understanding of dementia practice.
