A little support makes a big difference

Ensure your staff have the skills and knowledge to support me

To make sure you and your team are best equipped to care for people living with dementia, it’s important you commit to education and training.

Providing training and upskilling staff in key areas, as well as creating dementia-friendly cultures, will enable organisations to greatly improve the level of care they provide to people living with dementia.

Upskilling staff

The Centre for Dementia Learning at Dementia Australia offers a suite of education and consultancy programs designed for health professionals. We can produce customised education programs to meet the specific needs of your organisation. Education is delivered in a flexible and engaging way by highly- skilled facilitators who use experiential technology to support deeper understanding and empathy among your staff.
