Dementia training for BAME communities

Published: 25 August, 2016

The number of people with dementia of Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic (BAME) origin is expected to rise significantly – a seven fold increase over 40 years – but it is recognised that within the BAME communities there is low awareness of dementia and low numbers of people accessing dementia services.

Health Education England has launched a film – Finding Patience – which follows Patience and her family as they recognise and come to terms with her dementia and ultimately seek help.

The film aligns to tier 1 (awareness level) dementia training, which aims to; familiarise people with recognising and understanding dementia; support people interacting with those with dementia; and provide people with the knowledge to be able to signpost patients and carers to appropriate support.
