Society and Personal

(Human Rights and Dementia - MODULE THREE)


The rights of every human being is fundamentally important to all of us.  This is no different for people living with dementia, their family members/friends, unpaid carers and those working to support and help.  Laws to protect the rights of everyone across the world are set by the United Nations, right through to Scotland and the local communities within it.  Yet how much do you know and understand human rights in dementia?

Every human being has the right to life, the right not to be discriminated against and the right to have family life and privacy.  Do you experience these within the world of dementia and cognitive impairment?  Do you know how to ensure they are met and achieved?

In this course you will be exploring all this and more.  Starting with the building blocks of understanding what human rights are, how it affects people living with dementia, through to policies in Scotland, right through to how you can get involved to help yourself and others ensure their human rights are met.

In this final module (MODULE THREE), you will be exploring what is happening in Scotland to address human rights and dementia on a Society and Personal Level.  You will be exploring human rights and citizenship and hear about some of the events that are taking place in Scotland around this.  You will then be thinking about human rights on a personal level, reading about some projects you can personally get involved with.  The Module ends by drawing all three modules, encouraging you to consider what changes you are going to make in your life to take your learning forward.

To access this course, you will need to self enrol on the course.  This is really easy, just follow the instructions and provide your name, email address and a password.
