Even to your old age and grey hairs I am he, I am he who will sustain you. I have made you and I will carry you; I will sustain you and I will rescue you (Isaiah 46:4).
In 2014 I had the privilege of completing the “Understanding Dementia” MOOC (Massive Open Online Course) through the University of Tasmania. As its name suggests, this is an online course which helps people to understand dementia. I was able to work at my own pace without having to do any exams. The lectures were given by qualified academics who had chosen excellent videos and clips. The whole course was free of charge, and I even received a certificate at the end.
In 2016 I completed the next in the series: “Preventing Dementia”. This was equally informative and sound.
My own “Discussing Dementia” presentations not only refer to these two MOOCs, but present some of their material. After all, why reinvent the wheel?
The next “Preventing Dementia” MOOC is open for registrations. To date nearly 13,000 people have signed up. The closing date for enrolments is 25th May, so sign up before it’s too late!

So, do yourself a favour. Learn, so that you can live well: living well now, and by helping to reduce your risk factors for dementia, living well into a ripe old age.
