About the Dementia Centre

The Dementia Centre is an impartial service supported by HammondCare to the aged and dementia care community. Our work with your organisation is entirely confidential unless you choose to share your story. Read about the Dementia Centre here.

We are happy to work with any size organisation. Our team has worked on one-on-one staff mentoring through to supporting the design of building projects from scratch. We are happy to consult for a few hours or work with your team over several weeks at a time according to your needs. Please contact us if you would like more information about our partnerships.

Our costs vary depending on the scope of work and number of staff involved. As a not-for-profit we charge enough to recoup our costs and ensure we can continue supporting all involved in the care of people with dementia.
