Understanding Dementia: A Course for Relatives

VIA University via Canvas Network

This course may be unavailable.


This is a course primarily meant for people who have a relative suffering from dementia or who suspect dementia in a relative. However, people working professionally in the field can also benefit from the course – especially by obtaining an understanding of the perspectives of the relative of a demented person.

The structure of the course follows the progression of the diseases of dementia – from the first suspicion of something being wrong to the fatal end.

The course will provide knowledge on the four most common types of dementia diseases: Alzheimer’s dementia, Multi Infarct dementia, Frontotemporal dementia, and Lewy Body dementia.

Start your review of Understanding Dementia: A Course for Relatives

  • Each week is divided into 4 parts: Medical knowledge, Daily life, What can you do?, and Being a relative. The information is valuable, especially the sharing of experience by actual patients' relatives. The interface is not very user-friendly but that is expected from a canvas course.
