Dementia Support Australia (DSA) provides a free 24/7 service, offering borderless and culturally sensitive support from accredited clinical experts to carers of people living with dementia.

If you are living with dementia, are caring for a person with dementia, or just want to find out more information about Dementia Support Australia, join us to hear from our Service Managers and Dementia Consultants. There will be an opportunity to meet with our local consultants after a short break when our Health Professionals Education Session is in progress. You are welcome to join the Health Professionals Education Session, but you may find the content in this session not as relevant or appropriate to your needs.

After a short break we will hear from DSA Head of Clinical Services, Prof Steve Macfarlane. Prof Steve Macfarlane will discuss a range of topics including medication and supporting Behaviours and Psychological Symptoms of dementia. Finally, our Service Managers will discuss Dementia Support Australia Case Studies.
