     3. Other Comments or Submissions
  • Challenge of diversity in the Dementia sector. Frequently people are assessed
    and enter the system too late necessitating higher levels of case management
  • Service Models - Small groups – meaningful activities (arts, photography)
  • Workforce development – specialized training for workers – skilling volunteers,
    carers, and future proofing generalist services.
