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 https://www.aci.health.nsw.gov.au/resources/aged-health/allied-health/allies-in-dementia
