Dementia Support Australia


Dementia Support Australia (DSA) is a free nationwide service for people living with dementia and their carers.
Accredited consultants provide advice and recommendations to people who care for someone with dementia where
behaviours are a risk to themselves or others. DSA offers free support 24 hours a day, 365 days a year throughout Australia.

 DSA delivers the Dementia Behaviour Management Advisory Service (DBMAS) and Severe Behaviour Response Teams (SBRT). We also provide the Needs Based Assessment Service which assess eligibility for entry into the Specialist Dementia Care Program. Our program is funded by the Australia Government.
