The Living Longer Living Better reforms provide support for this choice and emphasise that the care and support for people with dementia is now considered core business rather than a special needs area for all providers.Consequently there is an increased need for community care organisations to ensure that they are responsive to the needs of consumers living with dementia. Alzheimer's Australia Vic is a Registered Training Organisation (RTO) offering accredited programs and a broad range of dementia specific workshops and seminars to community care service providers and community support services.
