Helping people who live with dementia to stay at home longer

Staying at Home is a free education and respite program. It provides carers with advice and practical strategies on how to support a person living with dementia to remain in their own home for as long as possible.

As a part of the program, people living with dementia are offered an introduction to respite and receive tailored support to maintain meaningful activities at home. Carers and the person living with dementia also participate in the educational program.

Designed as a residential program, you will join other carers and people living with dementia in a peer support program.
