Our primary service at Dementia Detailing is to assist and empower Health Care Professionals, Aged Care Staff, Carers or family members to improve the quality of care they provide to those living with cognitive decline (dementia). We work with you to achieve your goals in supporting the needs of the individual, now and tomorrow.

Our services are tailored to meet the specific needs of each client and align with the goals of the new Aged Care Quality Standards due for implementation in July 2019.

Our vision is to generate an experience of care that is dignified, personalised, meaningful, and comfortable.

Our Services

Dementia Detailing is proud to be an Adelaide based business offering unique services to those caring for people living with dementia. Our scope of work extends from the individual to the corporate client; from the inception of care through to end of life.

We assist and empower carers to identify and meet the distinct needs of those living with dementia, and work along side them in finding sustainable solutions to the challenges of care they face.

Our services are delivered via education, implementation and mentoring strategies.

We utilize evidence based practice where ever possible, current research, a wealth of experience and common sense. Our team is predominantly registered allied health professionals with a career focus in dementia care, however, on occasion staff are recognized as dementia “whisperers”.

Mentoring

We offer tailored mentoring services to carers of individuals living with dementia. Our mentoring services can cater to the needs of carers who may be family members caring in the home setting, to those who are health professionals practicing in a health care environment. Mentoring can be delivered as a one on one service or may be provided in a group setting. By nature this service has an educational element to it, which can be formally presented along with the mentoring services in the group setting.

Mentoring services aim to empower carers with sustainable specialised skills and a discerning understanding of the individual living with dementia . These skills and knowledge will assist them in identifying the needs of the individual for whom they care, and in finding dignified solutions to the challenges of care they face.

Implementation and Education

Dementia detailing offer services working collaboratively with corporate aged care providers or health care providers to assist them in the implementation of initiatives or programs to assist with becoming dementia care competent. Dementia is recognised as a national health priority by both Federal and State Governments, who support the urgent need to reform health services so they can demonstrate a strong competence of care in the services they deliver to those living with dementia.

Teepa Snow Coaching

Teepa Snow is one of the world’s leading educators on dementia and the care that accompanies it. Her education principles are delivered via her Positive Approach ® to Care (PAC). PAC provides a wide variety of services to enhance the awareness of dementia and the skills required to care for those living with the diagnosis. Dementia Detailing can provide education and mentoring services from a Certified Teepa Snow Coach to upskill those involved in the care of those living with dementia.

Relocation Rescue - Assistance During Times of Transition

At Dementia Detailing we realise the complex nature associated with times of change, especially during a time of relocation. Relocation Stress is a recognised state of being for individuals undergoing a change of environment, where symptoms can be physical and/or emotional. This experience can be acute or delayed. For those living with dementia the experience of relocation stress may be heightened as they frequently find new environments particularly difficult to interpret and process. In turn, their experience of stress and anxiety can often manifest in responsive behaviours, such as: agitation, aggression, increased confusion, disorientation, restlessness, vocalisation and sleep disturbance.

We realise the substantial physical and emotional burden a relocation demands from those living with dementia, their family and loved ones. In response to this, Dementia Detailing provides a range of tailored services for those planning to undergo a relocation. These services cater for permanent relocation, such as, moving into residential aged care, or for more acute situations, such as, those returning from hospital to home or to their aged care provider. Our services aim to be preemptive and minimise the burden of relocation stress. We do this by working together with clients, their families, and partnering with the relevant aged care or health care provider in order to meet the specific needs of each client, and distinctly reflect their individuality.

This service is typically delivered over a four to six week period, however, as it is a tailored service this time frame is flexible and is appropriately adapted to suit the individual needs of each client. We treat each client as a valued individual and offer efficient solutions which add meaning to their quality of life.
