The Program supports people with severe behavioural or psychological symptoms of dementia and is intended to stabilise or improve their symptoms to the degree they can transition to a mainstream setting.
The Australian Government is establishing a national network of units under the Program, with at least one unit to be established in each of the 31 Primary Health Network regions.
Presently, the three Program units in Queensland all have vacancies and are ready to receive referrals. Referrals can be made from outside the Primary Health Network region where the unit is located.
