Dementia and People with Learning DISABILITIES


Training pack

Dementia and people with learning disabilities


This invaluable training pack has been devised by Respond in partnership with the GOLD Group - a group of older people with learning disabilities who have been working together for the last decade on helping others to understand what it means to grow older with a learning disability. Respond is grateful to CSIP and Valuing People for their support in developing this pack.

The focus for this training pack is the importance of supporting relationships for people with learning disabilities who develop dementia. It has been designed primarily with the staff team of a residential home in mind as the central users but is flexible for other training situations. Individual information cards can be copied and used as handouts or acetates or to plan teaching sessions. The action cards can be used as the basis for small group exercises.

The pack is bound in an A5 ring binder file and contains:

  • Two different types of training cards - information cards and action cards. All cards are laminated.
  • 2 DVDs - The original GOLD video which covers aspects of growing older with a learning disability and 'Forget me Not' a play about dementia from the perspective of people with learning disabilities. The play has been devised and performed by the GOLD group.
  • A resource and reading list
