More than 1.2 million Australians are involved in their care and the cost of dementia on the health and aged care systems in calculated to be at least $4.9 billion per annum.
National clinical guidelines for people with dementia will provide health professionals and carers in primary care, aged care and hospital settings with access to recommendations reflecting current evidence on dementia care to better respond to the needs and preferences of the person living with dementia.
The guidelines contain 109 recommendations that health and aged care staff should apply in their workplaces while also responding to the needs and preferences of the person with dementia and their carer(s) and family.
This guideline is endorsed by the RACGP.
