The Dementia Learning Guide

Our Dementia Learning Guide helps you plan your approach to building your team’s dementia capability and deliver quality care.

Empower your team with best-practice knowledge and skills and transform dementia care in your organisation.

The aged care sector is changing rapidly.

Aged Care Standards reform and the Royal Commission into Aged Care Quality and Safety have highlighted the need for significant changes in the aged care sector.

The next generation of aging Australians have high expectations for care and aging well. It will take a workforce with the right skills and knowledge to meet these care needs.

Quality dementia care sets the benchmark for quality care

Quality dementia care needs to become an intrinsic, core element of aged care. More than two-thirds of aged care residents have moderate to severe cognitive impairment. When you cater for the needs of people with dementia, you provide the best standard of care for all residents.

Research shows that many aged care workers don’t feel confident delivering dementia care. Developing and mentoring staff is critical to building your team’s dementia capabilities.

Expert education, professional development and training, tailored to staff and organisational needs

Dementia Australia is the leading provider of quality dementia education. Our Dementia Learning Guide introduces more digital education, using virtual classrooms and interactive elements to maximise engagement and learning outcomes.

Our programs are designed using evidence-based research and informed by people living with dementia, their family and carers.

These education programs support participants to:

  • increase knowledge
  • maximise engagement
  • improve communication
  • increase empathy.
