Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Resources

DSA provides advice and recommendations where behaviours are impacting the care of a person living with dementia

The spirit of understanding, collaboration and connection underpins our approach to supporting Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people with dementia, and their families.

We have developed resources for this community to support people living with dementia, families, and carers. Download the below brochure and poster to find out more about our services and share within your health network.

The story of the design

Developed for us by Balarinji, the design is based on the artwork Spring Journey & Spirit Ancestors.

Spring Journey depicts the scorched earth under the sparse shade of desert scrub. The land drums a tribal beat. The design is about a journey through time.

There are tracks with people resting along the way. “Different colours represent unique songlines, all on the same path. People are guided along songlines by their ancestors, represented by spirit people motifs. The people on the journey stop and watch the spirits dancing in celebration of life. We wanted the tone of the design to be uplifting and warm, reflecting HammondCare’s values of listening and relating, enabling choice, tailoring care and nurturing the whole person.”
