DSA has a team of specialist consultants that builds care staff knowledge and confidence in delivering specialised strategies and responses to behaviour and environmental factors impacting the person with dementia.
The Capacity Building team helps staff identify and understand the cause of a behaviour and develop a care approach to address and potentially resolve the behaviour.
The Capacity Building team provides:
- Capacity building: Increased competence through knowledge translation, knowledge acquisition, and group discussion.
- Role modelling: Increased competence through guided and practical exercises to allow the application of knowledge to the care setting and client.
- Mentoring: Increased competence through individualised, collaborative support to facilitate professional practice development
