Through consultation with people with a dementia, carers and allied health professionals, the Allies In Dementia Care Health Project has developed resources which provide an overview about the vital role of allied health in supporting people with a dementia. The project is a joint initiative of Dementia Australia and the NSW Agency for Clinical Innovation.

The resources include two guides:

  • for health professionals (Better Health For People Living With Dementia: A Guide On The Role of Allied Health Professionals)
  • for consumers (Allied Health Professionals And You: A Guide For People Living With Dementia And Their Carers).

Both guides are freely available as online or PDF versions at
