Webinar content

People living with dementia, families and carers and people who work with or support people living with dementia are encouraged to participate in the webinar.

The Australian Government will invest $229.4 million to improve quality of life and care for people living with dementia, while improving the sector’s focus on delivering care that meets the needs of people throughout their dementia journey. These initiatives will support people living with dementia and their carers at every stage from diagnosis through to residential aged care.

The webinar will outline how aged care reforms will ensure people living with dementia are:

  • connected with the support they need post-diagnosis
  • enabled to remain in their home for longer
  • able to access high quality, dementia informed aged care services.

The presenters will cover how the reforms will deliver increased training and support for aged care workers to help them in adopting better dementia care practices.

You will have the opportunity to say how we can best work with aged care providers, the workforce, families, carers and people living with dementia to make positive changes.
