Learning Resources

Dementia Care Matters offers a range of learning materials based upon the experiences of people living with a dementia, care staff and relatives.

These include the innovative "Feelings Matter Most" series of six books authoured by David Sheard and published by Alzheimer's Society. The books feature practical tools to help care services improve the quality of life of people living with a dementia.

The series of books are complimented by seven DVDS which feature live learning sessions, practical examples, shared personal experiences, open debate and inspiring interviews one of which takes place between John Suchet and David Sheard our Chief Executive and Founder. These DVDs can be used to support  learning sessions, team meetings and home study.

In 2013 we launched a major 4 hour DVD Learning programme, mapped to QCF requirements and accompanied by a certificated test; 'Mattering: in a dementia care home,'  Part One - Core Skills and Part Two - Creating Culture Change.

All resources can be purchased from our on-line shop.
