Nightingale Nurses is a new initiative and model of care developed by Dementia Australia SA which aims to meet the needs of people living with dementia and their families.
Nightingale Nurses are specialist nurses who provide support and guidance from the point of diagnosis with dementia. This unique service is available to anyone living with dementia, their families and carers. We aim to provide practical advice and emotional support on a one-to-one basis to enable people living with dementia and their families to live well. Using a person-centred approach we can develop strategies which help improve and maintain a good quality of life for all the family.
