Staying at Home South West QLD

The Staying at Home project is a localised version of the (Dementia Support Australia) Staying at Home Program to service the rural and remote communities of South West Queensland.

Our goal is the delivery of a program to 75 dyads (pairs: a person living with dementia and their carer) of eligible participants who are at the early stages (6-24months) of their Dementia diagnosis to develop the skills, knowledge and confidence of the carer while also demonstrating the benefits of the proactive use of high quality respite with the joint objectives of maintaining the person living with Dementia in their own home in their own community, while protecting and enhancing the wellbeing of both the Carer and the Cared for.

We wish to achieve this by providing a learning and development opportunity for both, in the provision of a three-day program were both parties stay together in a holiday style cottage in the beautiful country town of Clifton with opportunities to enjoy the regions activities and attractions all supported by a multidisciplinary team of support workers, clinicians, and allied health professionals.

Programs will commence in 2024 if you would like to know more, please contact the Staying at Home Coordinator 0746973735 or make an online enquiry:
