Care4Dementia App

This App was developed to provide information and support for carers in their role of caring for persons with behavioural changes that can occur in dementia. Information on what these behaviours look like, why they might be happening and what you can do to help is included for those most commonly reported by carers. Understanding why behavioural changes are occurring can help to manage the behaviour.

Compatible with smartphone and tablet, this app is part of suite of resources based on the DBMAS Behaviour Management – A Guide to Good Practice: Managing Behavioural and Psychological Symptoms of Dementia 

We apologise that the BPSD Apps are unavailable at this time due to software updates. As we are currently updating the content of the original BPSD Guide we are investigating options for revising & updating the Apps.

We hope to have the updated versions operational as soon as possible but we anticipate it may be 2021 before they are complete.

Thank you for your patience.

It includes practical information about how to deal with behaviours and psychological symptoms associated with dementia (BPSD)*

LGBTI Fact Sheets

There is a need for greater, targeted support for LGBTI people with dementia from all care contexts, requiring service providers to be better informed in the additional considerations relevant to the management of BPSD in this group.
