We're here to help
More than 400,000 Australians have dementia, including Alzheimer's disease, and we support hundreds through our dementia specific aged care services that focus on helping each resident with their memory, mood and behaviour.
We offer both permanent care or short stay specialist dementia care programs at 21 of our 28 aged care homes, all staffed 24/7 by our compassionate and qualified carers and registered nurses. These aged care homes include secure areas where dementia care residents can live safely, without getting lost or scared.
We develop personalised dementia care programs, working closely with a resident's family and healthcare team to understand a person's history, likes, dislikes and communication style. This helps us provide the right kind of comfort, any time they become scared, frustrated or unhappy.
What you can expect during dementia care
Your ACAT Assessment will state whether you've been approved for care. This will help inform how our team prepares for and cares for you. Many dementia care residents do have high care needs.
