Dementia symptoms in the early stages are hard to recognise, but if you find yourself experiencing any symptom related to this condition, it is advised that you seek immediate treatment. This disease does not have a permanent cure, but the progress of the disease can be stopped to a great extent. In fact, some patients even experience improvement temporarily. If you plan to work with patients with dementia, you will find this course highly comprehensive and instructional providing in-depth information on the condition, and your capacity as a healthcare worker.

The NCFE Cache Level 3 Award in Awareness of Dementia will discuss key topics such as how to interact with patients with this condition, how to administer medication and how to ensure that patients with dementia lead full and healthy lives.

What is a ‘regulated qualification’?

A regulated qualification is delivered by a learning institution which is regulated by a government body. In England, the government body which regulates courses is Ofqual. Ofqual regulated qualifications sit on the Regulated Qualifications Framework (RQF), which can help students understand how different qualifications in different fields compare to each other. The framework also helps students to understand what qualifications they need to progress towards a higher learning goal, such as a university degree or equivalent higher education award.

What is an ‘endorsed’ course?

An endorsed course is a skills based course which has been checked over and approved by an independent awarding body. Endorsed courses are not regulated so do not result in a qualification - however, the student can usually purchase a certificate showing the awarding body’s logo if they wish. Certain awarding bodies - such as ABC Awards and TQUK - have developed endorsement schemes as a way to help students select the best skills based courses for them.
