Overview

For an industry that has long been task-driven, the move to a competitive market in February of 2017 can seem like an overwhelming obstacle, particular for dementia specific care.
With over 353,800 Australians living with dementia, and that number only set to rise with a rapidly growing ageing population, it is crucial that aged care providers have the capacity to provide services. Aged care providers need a skilled workforce and a person centred organisational culture in order to provide specialised care and empower independent living for people with dementia.

Furthermore, with the government investing over $34 million into research and innovation for dementia and aged care services, it is time for aged care providers to get ready. Attend the 'Strengthening Dementia Strategy' conference to hear best practice from government agencies, not for profits and leading aged care providers across the sector.

Learn practical strategies to:

  • Draw best practice from evidence based research and clinical guidelines
  • Transform organisational culture to support people with dementia
  • Embed person centred practices for dementia into an organisational strategy
  • Improve staff capacity for dementia specific care
  • Enable independent living for people with dementia
  • Mitigate risk while empowering choice for people living with dementia
