About Dementia Support UK
Dementia Support UK
Dementia Support UK is an accessible dementia consultancy service, funded by Innovate UK, and free at the point of referral, which builds a support infrastructure for the care of people with dementia across the care sector. Using video conferencing, this nonpharmacological and person centred model provides care and support staff with dedicated one-to-one time with a dementia consultant to:
- Better understand the behaviour of the person living with dementia
- Problem solve
- Build capacity within the care and support team.
This highly innovative approach was developed in Australia by The Dementia Centre, HammondCare. Since its commencement in 2016, the programme has supported over 25,000 people with dementia in care homes, domestic homes and hospitals.
