Description

The NSW Dementia Services Framework 2010-2015 sets the direction for improving quality of life for people with dementia, carers and families in NSW.

The Framework is for health, community and residential services to assist with planning and development of dementia services and programs. It reviews service needs and makes recommendations along a service pathway of dementia care from awareness through diagnosis, assessment, community, hospital and residential care. Recommendations are practical and aim to improve access, diagnosis and continuing care. It can be used as a checklist for reviewing the way services are currently provided and can encourage reflection on how services could be delivered differently to improve outcomes for people with dementia,
carers and families.
