Course content

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, with study pathways that can be care focussed, design focussed or a combination of both. The care focus pathway relates any aspect of life engagement and interaction with people who have dementia and 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 frequent opportunities for involvement with the Institute, supporting your learning and future career progression.
