The Dementia Detailing difference

“I wouldn’t hesitate to engage Dementia Detailing for any organisation or individual involved in caring for people living with dementia.” ~ Matt, Aged Care Manager.

Dementia is recognised as a national health priority in Australia by both Federal and State Governments, and, together with heightened community expectations, the pressure on aged care facilities to lift standards of care is great.

Yet, even the most well resourced facility can lack the internal resources and knowledge to meaningfully advance their dementia-centric model of care for residents living with dementia.

Dementia Detailing draws on contemporary dementia care approaches to assist and empower health care professionals and staff to improve the quality of care for those living with cognitive decline (dementia).

We can help you to implement new initiatives or evolve current programs to assist with becoming dementia-care competent and improve your facility’s competitive advantage by offering carers and families a more holistic approach to care.

All of Dementia Detailing’s training programs meet the Australian Government’s Aged Care Quality Standards 2019 and Aged Care Diversity Framework.

Retain your staff

By empowering staff with specialised skills and knowledge, we not only improve the quality of care delivered to those living with dementia, but we also improve the professional confidence of staff and their workplace satisfaction.

And staff who feel empowered, confident and satisfied in their workplace are less likely to resign, burn out or be involved in a serious incident at work. Not only does this benefit your staff – it benefits your organisation.

Retaining skilled staff is vital: it improves efficiencies; saves money, time and resources; and positions your organisation as a workplace of choice for other skilled health care professionals.

The Positive Approach to Care®

Central to our work to up-skill and improve confidence of teams within the aged care sector is the work of Teepa Snow, a world leader in dementia education and care approaches, whose education principles are delivered via her Positive Approach to Care® (PAC).

Our accredited PAC practitioners can build the confidence and skills of carers and health care professionals by empowering them to not only identify the needs of those residents living with dementia, but also find dignified solutions for the challenges of care.
