An exploratory study into the availability and suitability of existing dementia services for Aboriginal Australians

 

Overview

This research study seeks to generate greater understanding of the impact of dementia on Aboriginal Australians by exploring the availability and suitability of existing dementia services. A service review will be conducted on the Illawarra which will endeavour to assess the cultural suitability of services for Aboriginal peoples. Interviews will also be conducted with service providers to identify factors which hinder or support Aboriginal Australians to access culturally appropriate dementia services in the Illawarra. The outcomes from this study will have important policy implications and will help to provide the groundwork needed to address dementia service provision for the Aboriginal population.
