Get a professional boost with professional level dementia courses
POWERCARE stands for quality in all of our efforts. In collaboration with DemensLiv - one of the most important academic players in the area of dementia - POWERCARE offers a number of professional courses. The courses are designed to provide you and your colleagues with the knowledge and tools necessary to work with individuals with dementia and to have a positive impact on the life of the individual with dementia and family members.
"DemensLiv was founded by a nurse, Maria Tønnersen. Maria has worked actively with the development of dementia treatment and in a professional leadership role since 2007. Maria published her book, "Life must be lived, even with dementia" in September of 2018. Maria has a degree in management with a major in systems theory, a master's in public management, and has worked in the regional, municipal and private sector."
We will come out to your workplace - across Denmark
POWERCARE offers practical, tailor-made dementia courses for regional staff, municipalities, private hospitals, private nursing homes and residential care homes. The courses are held locally at the workplace and are tailored according to the individual needs of the workplace.
We have a wide range of courses and trainings available, and we offer them to both skilled and unskilled workers, caregivers, dementia coordinators, nurses, doctors and managers in the field of dementia treatment.
We can also provide our services to caregivers and others who come into contact with those who have dementia.
The courses are held all over Denmark. You just need to provide a training room with catering available, and we take care of the rest.
The courses are tailored to fit your needs
After a short conversation with our professionally qualified instructors, you outline the professional challenges presented by dementia that you encounter most in your workplace. Then, the instructor will assist you in choosing the modules that are best suited to your particular team. You can choose freely between courses, each lasting 3 hours.
Depending on your individual needs, the courses you select can either be held over a few days or spread over several weeks. The courses are designed and taught according to the active learning principle, which means that participants are expected to be actively involved and the course participant’s experience is a fundamental element of the course.

Our course instructors all have a professional healthcare background and have many years of practical experience working with people with dementia and their caregivers. They have all worked in the healthcare sector and have extensive experience in both the primary and secondary care sectors.
What do you get out of it?
Participants find that they are provided with concrete tools to deal with everyday challenges they encounter when working with individuals with dementia and dementia-like symptoms, and that the courses strengthen their analysis and reflection skills in dementia-related care.
The courses also provide employees with the tools they need to elevate the quality of care they provide to individuals with dementia or dementia-like symptoms. The training also serves as a starting point to open a dialogue and contribute to new concrete initiatives that can be developed locally at the respective workplace.
