Recently, DementiaSA’s courses have become SETA-accredited, offering newfound sustainability to the organization
DementiaSA opened its doors in 2006 and started offering training in dementia in 2010. We train home-based care givers, residential care facility staff, nurses and community health workers in specialized “person-centred” care required when caring for someone living with dementia. Our courses have proved popular with medical professionals, carers and lay people. Our courses have always allowed for health-care professionals to attain Continuous Professional Development points, however, this month, we took our training offering to a new level, by attaining our Services SETA-accreditation.
Services SETA-accreditation was a long administrative process, spearheaded by our awesome operations team, but successfully achieved and our certificate issued in June 2020. We are now a services-SETA accredited organization for training in Care of an Elderly Person, in which there is a dementia module. We are excited to start on this new era of training work and also for the sustainability that this accreditation will provide for DementiaSA as an organization.
