Koori dementia care project

 

Overview

The primary aim of the Koori dementia care project is to inform, educate, and build capacity in six NSW Aboriginal communities about the effects of dementia on older Aboriginal people and their families.

The project aims to achieve the following outcomes:

A key focus of this model will be to establish the knowledge wants and needs of each community then target, train, and mentor appropriate people within each community to provide that information. Indigenous educators will be recruited from each community and work side by side with the Project Manager, thus ensuring a sustainability of information in that community when the project is completed.

The Koori dementia care project is a joint project between Neuroscience Research Australia (NeuRA) and several Aboriginal communities across NSW. The project is funded by Ageing Disability and Home Care.
