The Dementia Care Degree Program is Australia's first degree specifically focused on dementia. It is available to domestic or international students, from carergivers to health professionals and anyone with an interest in learning more about dementia.
It is direct-care orientated and you will develop specialist knowledge of dementia and dementia care to enable the delivery of best practice dementia care.
The Dementia Care Program is the first of its kind and will set benchmarks for the value of the skills and knowledge graduates will bring to the aged care sector and other healthcare environments. Dementia is a condition that affects hundreds of thousands of people across the globe - one that poses significant challenges to their quality of life as well as that of their families and communities.
