South Australia

The South Australia Dementia Behaviour Management Advisory Services (DBMAS) is operated by Alzheimer’s Australia SA.

We provide assistance in managing the behavioural and psychological symptoms of dementia to family carers, care workers, health professionals, and aged care service providers who are supporting people with dementia. We are strongly committed to supporting people from culturally and linguistically diverse backgrounds, Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people, and those living in rural and remote areas.

Our aim is to improve the quality of life of people with dementia and their carers, and we do this by working closely with the person with dementia and all those involved in providing care and support to them. We have a range of approaches which we can tailor match to your situation, including:

  • Assessment of the person with dementia
  • Clinical support, information and advice (face to face and via telephone or email);
  • Care planning, case conferences and short term case management;
  • Mentoring and clinical supervision; and
  • Education and training.

The DBMAS office is staffed by a multidisciplinary team of expert clinicians and is available between 9am and 5pm on weekdays with 24 hours phone support through our helpline on 1800 699 799.
