In 2021, the 12th annual National Dementia & Aged Care Reform Conference will provide a critical national platform to de-brief on the Final Report of the Royal Commission into Aged Care Quality & Safety as well as the Federal Budget 20-21.

On the first two days of the event, the National Dementia & Aged Care Reform Conference will bring together a host of leading experts to discuss best-practice strategies and initiatives for improving quality person-centered care across multiple settings, and will also detail the latest research, therapies and treatments, innovation, and technologies from around the world. The 2021 event presents a unique opportunity to explore what’s possible and embrace change.

Founder and Executive Director of Group Homes Australia, Tamar Krebs is presenting at the National Dementia & Aged Care Reform Conference. Tamar’s presentation is titled: Doing dementia differently: creating a home in the local community. This presentation will explore how Tamar sought to do things differently and to disrupt the dementia care model. Historically, innovation in dementia care has always fallen within the tech space, rather than the home-care space. Tamar started Group Homes Australia in 2012 with small group homes with 6-10 residents and with a workforce focusing on the social structured model. With the Royal Commission outlining its preferred option of small scales homes as per recommendation 143, this presentation will inspire all on what the future of Dementia care can look like in Australia.
