The NSW Dementia Behaviour Management Advisory Services (NSW DBMAS) is one of the many services provided by HammondCare – our passion is improving quality of life for people in need
When behaviours impact the care and quality of life for people living with dementia, Dementia Behaviour Management Advisory Services (DBMAS) are there to help.
The HammondCare DBMAS program provides a state-wide service across NSW and is accessible through the national DBMAS number 1800 699 799. Callers will be connected with a consultant from our highly skilled multi-disciplinary team who will make an assessment about the intervention and recommendations required.
The NSW DBMAS program supports staff and carers, including family carers in the community, residential, and primary care settings with assessment, advice, short and medium term support and interventions. Adding to our service is tele-health technology which allows us to provide an additional presence in regional and remote areas when our consultants and clinicians can’t be there.
The NSW DBMAS program will seek to increase the confidence of care staff after interventions enhancing the quality of life for the referred client and co-located residents. And for family carers, the service provides a much needed support to answer questions, implement successful interventions and provide hands on support about challenging behaviours.
NSW DBMAS is committed to supporting people from culturally and linguistically diverse backgrounds, Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders and other diverse communities and needs. Our mission in action is to serve people with complex health or aged care needs and our DBMAS services operates from a person and relationship centred focus.
Our team works in partnership with a range of clinicians and service providers across NSW with a focus on providing individualised care and responses.
The NSW HammondCare DBMAS consultants are here to take your calls Monday – Friday during business hours. Should you need to speak to someone after hours our colleagues on the National after-hours service will assist you and refer you back to us the next business day.
