Service that makes a difference
Our diverse range of services begins with an informed and dedicated team. The Dementia Centre believes it is possible to make a significant difference to effective care through:
Consultancy to improve quality of life for people with dementia through access to a wide range experts, program partners, experience, education. The consulting team has worked nationally and internationally on design and delivery of health care, social care and housing support to people with dementia.
Design Advice to create environments suitable for older people and people with dementia, which is demonstrated as having a profound impact on a person’s function and wellbeing. Our consultants use knowledge of dementia and age-related sensory impairments, and practical experience to design spaces that better enable people of all ages in retirement living, hospitals, residential and community-based care environments.
Design Endorsement offers you international recognition for developing a suitable environment for older people and people with dementia. Our consultants will assess your physical environment and provide you with specific acknowledgement of good design as well as suggest areas in which improvements could be made to ensure that your environment is suitable and enabling for your clients.
Customised Training to meet the particular needs of your team. Topics range from staff selection through best practice at night to managing behaviours of concern. Programs can include training for staff working with younger people who have dementia.
