A DTA training session delivered at our organisation gave us much valuable constructive advice on areas for improvement at our day centres and around clients’ homes.
Love your courses. DTA have put together excellent and well-researched training. The best Personal Development training around.
I work in a day surgery and come across people who have varying types of dementia. Thank you for a better understanding of dementia.
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.

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.
