About the service

We aim to assist organisations create a capacity building education framework around reducing and addressing dementia-related responsive behaviours.

This can help ensure staff are trained to provide care in a way that meets the spoken and unspoken needs of residents.

The RB consultancy can complement the services provided by Dementia Support Australia (DSA) through facilitating sustainable facility-wide changes in practice.

* In consideration of ongoing discussion on language and terminology in the dementia community, DTA uses the term ‘responsive behaviours’ rather than Behavioural and Psychological Symptoms of Dementia (BPSD).
