Dementia Support Australia continues to provide its services across Australia during the current pandemic.

We understand that care homes and family carers might be more concerned about the level of access our services are able to provide. 

All services delivered by Dementia Support Australia have been defined by the Department of Health as 'professional services' and able to continue to provide much needed support on the ground in care homes and do not impact on family visits.

Should you require a tele-health consultation we can facilitate this via our video conference platform.

Our teams are accessible, 24/7 365 days 

If you have any questions during this period, please speak with a consultant on 

1800 699 799 or email us at
