Show close time for other time zones
The Specialist Dementia Care Program (SDCP) is a new Australian Government initiative. The program will provide a person-centred, multidisciplinary approach to care for a small number of people exhibiting very severe behavioural and psychological symptoms of dementia (BPSD), who are unable to be appropriately cared for by mainstream aged care services. The program will offer specialised, transitional residential support, focussing on reducing or stabilising symptoms over time, with the aim of enabling people to move to less intensive care settings.
This grant opportunity offers a targeted non-competitive grant to the invited organisation, to achieve the following objectives:
- to provide early access to care for people in the target group (people with very severe BPSD who are unable to be effectively cared for by mainstream aged care services)
- to provide an opportunity to test the SDCP model, before broader rollout of the program from 2019-20.
This grant opportunity invites Brightwater Care Group to apply for funding to operate a prototype service under the SDCP. The prototype will operate within Brightwater The Village, Inglewood Western Australia, within the Perth North PHN region.
