Become a leader in Dementia Care

Dementia Australia is the leading provider for education, services and advocacy for people living with dementia and those who work with them: residential aged care providers; community or home care services; family and communities; and the acute or subacute services including doctors, nurses, and allied health professionals.

We offer a comprehensive consultancy service which focuses on empowering your organisation to become a leader in delivering care and support for people living with dementia. Equipped with extensive knowledge and expertise, we work with you in creating dementia-friendly environments that are physically, socially and culturally inclusive.

Dementia Australia is also an Approved Provider of Endorsed Courses (APEC) by the Australian College of Nursing (ACN).

  • Consultants with real-world experience in aged care nursing, dementia care, dementia research, acute services and aged care best practice;

Our programs

Our programs are customised to meet your organisational needs. We involve you in our successful strengths-based approach which emphasizes what people with dementia can do, instead of what they can’t do.

This proactive, purposeful involvement results in higher engagement, fewer incidents and accidents, improved staff satisfaction and retention, and improved client satisfaction.

We can help anyone - from individuals in the community through to entire towns – to excel in caring for people with dementia. We educate staff, but we also mentor them in practice improvement and communication, and in engaging people with dementia.

We can provide your organisation with quality solutions for:
• Leadership
• Risk management
• Communication and interaction with clients living with dementia
• Restorative and rehabilitative therapies (such as the Montessori approach)
• Dementia specific training needs analysis
• Change management for mentoring and support
• Environmental design – building, furniture and landscaping
