Dementia Training Australia (DTA) is a consortium funded by the Australian Government to provide nationwide education and training on the care of people living with dementia. Established in 2016, DTA’s mission is to improve the care and wellbeing of both the people living with dementia and the staff delivering their care.


The Royal Commission into Aged Care Quality and Safety has recommended an industry-wide shift to small household models of accommodation. Part of this is a change in “bricks and mortar,” but a group home is grounded in the social life of the people living there. Tamar Krebs, Founder of Group Homes Australia will discuss her ground-breaking work, establishing community-based group homes and what it takes to make them work in an up and coming webinar with DTA.

Tamar is obsessed with doing dementia differently. In 2021, Tamar moved from Co-CEO of Group Homes Australia to executive director with a continued focus on disrupting the industry of dementia care, workforce, and innovation to ensure even more lives can flourish.
