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.
All courses have an applied focus on skills development and reflective practice, enabling course participants to transform their own practice, and potentially that of their colleagues, enhancing quality of life for people living with dementia. All participants undertaking one of our nationally recognised courses will require a Unique Student Identifier (USI). Create your USI at usi.gov.au.
Nationally accredited programs are marked with the Nationally Recognised Training logo.
