The Specialist Dementia Care Program (SDCP) is a new initiative that provides person-centred care for people living with dementia.
As funded by the Australian Government, Brightwater has been chosen to pilot the SDCP given our long history of supporting people with complex needs.
Located at Brightwater The Village – a warm and welcoming dementia-specific aged care home in Inglewood – the SDCP will provide transitional support for eight people.
Who is eligible for the SDCP?
The SDCP has been designed for people exhibiting very severe behavioural and psychological symptoms of dementia.
While a mainstream aged care home may not be appropriate, the SDCP will provide personalised, specialist care in a dementia friendly environment within Araluen House at The Village.
Eligibility for SDCP is determined by Dementia Support Australia. If you know someone who might benefit from the program, you will need to get their consent for a referral.
