End Stage Dementia
End Stage Dementia is a new online training course developed to provide your learners, such as personal care workers and assistants-in-nursing, with an understanding of how to effectively provide person-centred care for those living with end stage dementia.
Dementia is an irreversible, slowly-progressing illness - that is sadly the second leading cause of death in Australian people. Ensuring that care for someone living with dementia effectively transitions into palliative care is vital to maintaining and supporting someone’s quality of life.
Kineo Course’s End Stage Dementia has been developed to help aged care workers provide effective, person-centred care through the difficult end stages of dementia. It maintains a focus on helping to achieve care for the consumer’s emotional, spiritual, social and cultural requirements, and a collaborative approach towards entering palliative care.
The course is suitable for all workers with consumers living with dementia, including personal care workers and assistants-in-nursing working in residential aged care or those providing home care in the community. It encourages a multi-disciplinary team approach to care, requiring coordination and communication with a customer’s other care providers.
This course is useful as standalone training for your care workers looking after people entering end stage dementia, or paired with our existing aged care courses to provide a holistic approach to aged care. The End Stage Dementia course provides focused training concerning:
- what end stage dementia is and what happens when a person in care enters end stage dementia
- how members of your care team can work together to provide an individual, person-centred approach to care
- managing and implementing assessment directive and planning, and
- how to make the right decisions in a very sensitive time for the person in your care.
