Life Care: Finalist Dementia Care Excellence

Life Care is a finalist in the Community Achievements Award in the category of Dementia Care Excellence which is sponsored by Alzheimers Australia SA.

The submission from Life Care was based on the innovative partnership with The Dementia Services Development Centre, University of Stirling.

With the support of DSDC's head of learning of development Shirley Law, staff at Life Care were trained as facilitators in Best Practice in Dementia Care. This initial group of facilitators then cascaded the training throughout the organisation.

The nomination highlights Life Care’s commitment to training and equipping staff throughout the organisation to demonstrate Excellence in Dementia care.

The finalists will be announced at an Awards dinner on 25th November, we wish Life Care all the best.
