When it comes to dementia, there is still so much for us to learn and discover.

At Dementia Detailing, we are committed to a lifelong learning journey about dementia.

And we are experts at providing dementia support pathways to health and aged care services to support people living with dementia and their carers.

Our services are enduring because they are grounded in evidence-based facts.

Dementia Detailing has advocated and provided services for the needs of both families of people living with dementia and healthcare and aged care providers since 2018.

Understanding the perspective of both parties is integral to the success of our services and assists to inform the recommendations we make as a specialist in dementia care services.

Understanding dementia

More than half of all people living with dementia live in aged care facilities, meaning that the staff working in these facilities need to be well-equipped to provide care for these people in a manner that enhances their quality of life.

Essentially, when a brain is impacted by dementia, parts of the brain are dying.

The declining or lost abilities of people living with dementia are due to those parts of the brain that are dying or are dead.

Many care systems support and deliver services to mitigate the fallout effect of the parts of the brain that are dying, but our point of difference at Dementia Detailing is the way in which we work to harness the retained abilities.

Our services focus on enhancing the parts of the brain that remain active and alive and, in turn, improve the quality of life for people living with dementia.

Strategic planning for dementia

We are living longer, and this is a positive fact, but caring for our ageing population is a specialist field, particularly when caring for those living with dementia.

More than two thirds of Australia’s aged care residents experience moderate to severe cognitive decline, yet many facilities are not equipped to deliver the appropriate level and/or type of care required to offer these consumers the best quality of life.

Dementia Detailing assists health and aged care facilities to design and implement strategic dementia care solutions – tailored to suit the facility itself, its staff and residents.

We can assist you to integrate strategies into your care framework to assist people living with dementia in your care to focus on their retained abilities through the support of staff.

Staff, the facility and its consumers will benefit from efficient and sustainable education to assist in connection with residents living with dementia in a manner that will enhance their working lives.

We work closely with health and aged care providers to strategise the best practice strategies in undertaking their work duties across a 24-hour cycle, with the ease of staff and best interests of consumers in mind.

Are you looking to implement a holistic, positive and efficient approach to the care of people living with dementia in a health or aged care facility?

Partner with Dementia Detailing for strategic solutions to help your organisation navigate structural changes that best support those living with dementia and their carers.
