This course will equip you with the knowledge to develop enabling and life engagement focussed services and interventions for people living with dementia, and their carers.
The course is inter-disciplinary, exploring different approaches to enhancing life engagement for people who have dementia and their carers. The course is not limited to a health and social care perspective. The design focus looks at ways in which the environment (buildings, urban spaces, transport) can be designed or modified to provide meaningful activity and support for people with dementia and their carers.
This pioneering course has strong links with the Institute for Dementia at the University of Salford, an international centre of excellence in research, education and innovation. You will enjoy opportunities for involvement with the Institute, supporting your learning and future career progression.
