Abstract

These guidelines have been developed for health professionals and aged care staff who work with Indigenous people with dementia in remote settings. Information is provided on how to provide appropriate care and support to Indigenous people with dementia and their families. The recommendations cover the following areas:

  • awareness, recognition, and referral
  • initial assessment, diagnosis, and post diagnosis support
  • management, support, care, and review
  • end of life.

Stakeholders in dementia care in central Australia provided guidance on the contents of the guidelines. The guidelines should be read in conjunction with the 2008 Clinical practice guidelines and care pathways for people with dementia living in the community.
