Navigating the system
Whether seeking services for the person living with dementia or themselves, carers often need a helping hand in navigating the national, state and local service systems.
Social workers, dementia advisors, key workers and others who specialise in working with people living with dementia:
- provide help with navigating the system
- provide information about costs and fees for services
- provide advice on the range of government payments and concessions available.
The National Dementia Helpline is an Australian Government funded initiative.
