Training and consultancy

Innovations in Dementia can provide help to organisations around the involvement and support of people with dementia. We can also provide support about the best ways to write for an audience made up of people with dementia. We are happy to discuss consultancy projects with you. Please contact us.

We also provides a range of high-quality training opportunities tailored to suit the needs of your service.


Training options range from a single day’s introductory training to more specialised courses in communicating with people with dementia, understanding challenging behaviour for those working more intensively with people with dementia, or using computers with people with dementia

Here’s the outline of a typical single day course.

  • Introductions and objectives for the day
  • The experience of dementia
  • Up-to-date facts about dementia
  • The principles of person-centred care
  • Working with strengths
  • Communication skills in dementia care
  • Evaluation and certificates

This course would be suitable for those working with a client mix which might include people with dementia.

Those working more intensively with people with dementia will require more in-depth courses.

By way of example, a more advanced day course on communication would typically cover:

  • Introductions and objectives for the day
  • The crucial role of communication in dementia care
  • How dementia can impact on communication
  • Factors that impact on communication
  • Key language skills
  • Non-verbal communication
  • Effective listening to people with dementia
  • Understanding and responding to mistaken beliefs and alternative realities
  • Evaluation and certificates

Steve is happy to discuss your individual requirements and draw up a training proposal to meet your specific training needs.

Nothing can be more infuriating than to get to this point, to be thinking that you may be in need of our services, and then to be given absolutely no indication of how much this may cost you.

Even more infuriating is to see the phrase 'prices on application.'

Steve's fees are £400 per day, plus travel expenses.
