How we can help
Dementia Training Australia’s services may help you to meet the Aged Care Quality Standards.
Our award winning Environments Consultancy can help you create a dementia-friendly environment.
Training on how to use assessment tools
Support for creating changes, big or small
A dementia-friendly environment is enjoyable and meaningful, taking into account a person’s lifestyle, background and interests, as well as being familiar and recognisable.
We can discuss how to use your existing environment more effectively, plan a new facility or refurbish an existing one.

Optimise the use of antipsychotic medications
The ultimate goal of the consultancy is to contribute to reducing the number of antipsychotic medications used to support people with responsive behaviours, ensuring that these medications are prescribed at the lowest possible dose for the shortest possible time.

We aim to help staff within an organisation, understand the causes of responsive behaviours and to find ways to avoid or reduce them.
Access training and resources
Understand causes of responsive behaviours
Find ways to avoid or reduce them
We help organisations create a sustainable capacity-building education framework to reduce and address dementia-related responsive behaviours.
