Errorless Learning in Dementia is a protocol for setting up a skill training aimed at teaching individuals with dementia everyday activities.
Errorless learning can be applied in people with dementia in various stages of the disease, e.g. those living at home or in a care facility. This manual provides practical information on how to teach people with dementia everyday skills, with an emphasis on error reduction during the learning process. It provides concrete examples of activities that can be trained using a step by step approach, incorporating feed-forward instructions and using external cues, as well as instructional videos. It enables professional caregivers to setup an error-reducing intervention in their care facility. Errorless learning has been successfully used to teach people with dementia everyday tasks, such as chores, leisure activities and using electronic devices, and has been implemented in care facilities for people with dementia. The current evidence base suggests that errorless learning can be effective in activating individuals with dementia and aid in optimizing their learning capacity.
