Social Futures’ Community Aged Care Sector Support program supports the development of the home support service system and service providers to build capacity, cohesion and responsiveness in the community aged care sector in the Northern Rivers Region of NSW.
Under this program we deliver Dementia Care Education and convene in Northern Rivers Community of Practice Ageing Forum.
The Dementia Care Education Project develops and delivers information and education sessions to carers of people living with dementia who reside within the Northern Rivers to support them to continue to provide care at home.
The Community of Practice meets every two months. It includes community, government and private sector organisations delivering community aged care services, sector and service system development, community development and education in the Northern Rivers/ Far North Coast region of NSW. It focuses on sharing information, continued development of good practice and identifying strategies for collaboration to enhance local and regional community aged care services, collegial support, pathways and responsiveness to community need.
