Caring for people with dementia continues to be the great challenge of our society, hence the importance of professionals carrying out an adequate process of accompaniment for both diagnosed people and their families. Although at first we might think that dementias are related to neurological aspects, the truth is that they encompass dimensions that include the entire spectrum of the social and health care field.

The purpose of this training action is to provide specific and specialised training on the multidisciplinary approach to dementias for the proper accompaniment and care of people with Alzheimer’s or other dementias, as well as their family environment.


With this training action, we intend that students acquire and understand:

  • Knowledge and skills necessary to understand the process of normal and pathological ageing.
  • The communication process with people with dementia in order to be able to adapt to their particularities.
  • Cognitive intervention strategies and programmes, as well as the necessary skills to put them into practice.
  • Methods and strategies of functional stimulation in intervention with people with dementia.
  • Various applications of physiotherapy in intervention with the person with dementia and their carer.
  • The implications of caring for a person with dementia for the family environment.
  • Affective and sexual aspects in the normal ageing process and in Alzheimer’s disease.
  • Social and protective resources applicable to people with dementia and their environment.

Aimed at:

This course is aimed at professionals in the social and healthcare fields (clinical assistants, geriatric nurses, occupational therapists, physiotherapists, psychologists, doctors, social workers,…) who wish to broaden and recycle their knowledge in the field of dementia, as well as for all those who wish to gain a deeper understanding of the accompaniment of people with dementia and their family environment.
