I work in a day surgery and come across people who have varying types of dementia. Thank you for a better understanding of dementia.



Working Together

DTA works closely with dementia service providers across Australia. By working together, as experts in the dementia field, we are able to achieve a better quality of care for people living with dementia by providing access to quality education, support for individuals and organisations and a variety of services.

Connecting dots, working together

Dementia Support Australia (DSA)

Dementia Support Australia provide a 24 hour helpline where trained consultants provide advice and recommendations to people who care for someone with dementia.

Dementia Support Australia is a national service, supported by funding from the Australian Government under the Dementia and Aged Care Services Fund, which administers Dementia Behaviour Management Advisory Service (DBMAS) and Severe Behaviour Response Teams (SBRT).

DSA Consult individual cases on site (aged care home or home) to review the individual’s care plan and observe the patient and staff. After assessment, they will then suggest improvements within environment, setting, aspects of the care plan and, if needed, will refer the patient/carers to DTA for further education and support. In some cases, this can extend to a customised Tailored Training Package to provide ongoing and personalised support.

Dementia Training Australia is funded by the Australian Government to deliver a national approach to education and training of the workforce who are supporting people living with dementia.

We offer a range of training resources, events, and online courses, with certification to support claims for continuing education.
