The Dementia Centre

Founded by HammondCare in 1995, the Dementia Centre provides impartial research and expertise to the aged and dementia care community. It underpins our commitment to excellence in dementia care.

The centre has two main operating arms – consultancy support and advice on dementia care, and Dementia Support Australia (DSA).

DSA delivers the Severe Behaviour Response Team (SBRT) and the Dementia Behaviour Management Advisory Service (DBMAS). Both DBMAS and SBRT have been selected to lead Australian government-funded programs and we are currently expanding DSA with the aim of reaching urban, rural and remote areas of every state in Australia.
