This is a great interactive e-learning resource. It takes about 20 - 30 minutes to complete including the quiz. It has lots of information about common symptoms of dementia but also helpfully explains why these symptoms occur. The best thing I think is it encourages a more positive attitude and outlook  towards dementia.

Emma Winterman's curator insight, December 18, 2012 9:43 AM

Singing for the Brain is a service provided by the Alzheimer’s society. Often when people lose some memories they can remember song words and melodies. It provides a socialisation and respite opportunity for sufferers and carers. It also provides a means of communication for those who perhaps struggle to communicate in other ways.

This is the second module from the Social Care Institute for Excellence open dementia e-learning programme and focuses on living with dementia. Again with lots of audio and video clips this is a very interactive engaging resource. I found the section which discusses carers feeling when caring for a loved one with dementia particularly good.
