Dementia Centre is an independent consulting service provided by HammondCare
Combining research, education and practical experience, Dementia Centre works to empower everyone from health professionals and managers to carers in the home to take action to improve quality of life for people living with dementia.
Our service offers evidence-based practice advice drawn from extensive and ongoing research programs, backed by experience in the field.
Dementia Support Australia (DSA) is a partnership led by HammondCare that brings together dementia expertise from across the aged care industry. It provides the Dementia Behaviour Management Advisory Service (DBMAS) and Severe Behaviour Response Teams (SBRT) nationwide.
DSA's role is to improve the quality of life for people living with dementia and their carers by working in partnership with the person and their care network to understand the causes and/or triggers that led to changes in behaviour. Dementia is experienced differently by each person and our work seeks to recognise and respond individually to these changes.
Dementia Support Australia is supported by funding from the Australian Government under the Dementia and Aged Care Services Fund and provides a nation-wide service and is accessible by calling 1800 699 799.
