There are a variety of aged care support programs being funded by the Australian Government which are helpful for the well-being of the elderly and those that have special needs.

These support programs are open to different groups of people being identified with special needs.

According to a research publication released on 24 October 2016 by the Parliament of Australia, “A number of residential or flexible places will be made available to focus on the care of one or more of these groups.”

These include aged care clients who are suffering from dementia. It is fitting and relevant to have these kinds of initiatives and planning for dementia clients in particular as the number of these cases have increased in previous years and it is still increasing today.

Assessment and review of these dementia programs are being conducted so that the needs that are associated with dementia clients are addressed and taken into account.

Transparency for these programs is essential so that the community is aware of how to access help as needed.
