The Specialist Dementia Care Program (SDCP) will establish 35 units to provide specialist dementia care to people who are experiencing very severe behavioural and psychological symptoms of dementia. A prototype will be operational by July 2019, with the next round of 14 units to be advertised in early 2019.

Round tables

The Department of Health is funding HammondCare and the University of New South Wales to develop an assessment pathway to determine client eligibility for care under the SDCP. Round tables will be held with potential referrers to the SDCP in all states and territories starting in Brisbane on 18 February 2019.

Registrations are still open for sessions from 20 February 2019. To find out dates, locations and to register, visit the Dementia Centre website.
