Award in Mental Health Issues related to the Elderly Person
This MQF Level 5 module (2 ECTS) is intended to explore the mental health issues and challenges that elderly issues face as part of the natural ageing process (dementia, Parkinson’s’, depression, anxiety etc.), and how carers should best support patients that are dealing with these added obstacles.
During this module, our students will:
- Analyse the mental conditions present amongst the elderly population.
- Learn the necessary skills to aid their patients to cope with these added challenges.
- Learn how to provide a person-centred approach when looking after their patients.
- Learn how to collaborate with other health care professionals to provide the best service possible.
