Alzheimer's Australia (Qld)'s free Dementia Behaviour Management Advisory Service
PREAPPROVED BY ADMINISTRATOR
Attention Queensland carers,
The Dementia Behaviour Management Advisory Service (DBMAS), administered in Queensland by Alzheimerís Australia (Qld), provides free support for people caring for someone with dementia whose behaviour is having an impact on their care.
The service works directly with family carers, clinicians, community care organisations and those working in aged care facilities to help them better understand and care for people with dementia.
The DBMAS clinically-trained team assesses individual cases where there are challenging behaviours associated with dementia to develop strategies and plans to meet the specific needs of each client.
Queensland carers can contact DBMAS on 1800 699 799 at any time of the day or night. Qualifying situations will be assessed free of charge and appropriate referrals to other support services can also be made.
