Support Services

We recognise that supporting someone through their journey with dementia can at times be stressful, overwhelming and can limit opportunities for self-care.

To know your eligibility in accessing government-funded services, your GP may initiate this process by sending a referral to the Needs Assessment Service Coordination (NASC) or you may contact them directly.

NASC performs a thorough assessment of the person with dementia to identify what their goals are, know what the carer’s needs are and create a care package to meet these. Services put in place may be short-term (e.g. acute illness recovery for a few weeks/months) or for on-going long-term care.
