There are local resources for dementia support, including resources available via local PHNs, local health service dementia-specific rehabilitation services and in-reach and psychiatry services specific to a GP’s geographic location.

Refer to Part A: Dementia and Behavioural and psychological symptoms of dementia for further information about the clinical management of dementia.
