Our Support: Who and how

Tuesday 13 November, 2018

In the first 6 months of 2018 (Jan 1 – June 30, 2018) Dementia Support Australia supported 3,495 Dementia Behaviour Management Advisory Services (DBMAS) clients and 399 Severe Behaviour Response Team (SBRT) clients. Whilst each referral is unique, there are some common themes emerging in relation to the clients we support, the response we provide and the outcomes achieved. Of particular note is the different gender and slightly older age for DBMAS clients, and higher contributing factors, tailored strategies and types of responsive behaviours for SBRT clients. Results for both clients indicate high levels of advice followed with significant reduction in behaviours. Want to refer to the service? Contact us on 1800 699 799 or via  dsa@dementia.com.au.
