The Australian Government’s Specialist Dementia Care Program (SDCP) provides transitional support and care for people living with very severe behavioural and psychological symptoms of dementia.

The SDCP offers temporary care with a goal to stabilise and reduce a person’s behavioural symptoms with a supported transition into a less intensive care setting.

More information on the SDCP referral and assessment process is available by contacting DSA on 1800 699 799 or via their website at www.dementia.com.au.
