Slide 2:

Dementia is the term used to describe a group of conditions which cause a gradual progressive decline in the day-to-day functioning of an individual. The condition attacks the central nervous system i.e. the brain. Symptoms include but are not limited to loss of memory, intellect, rational though, social skills and physical ability. When it comes to Australian homecare, Sydney is struggling to keep up with current demand. http://www.homecaring.com.au/

Slide 3:

On the hole, Australia has a great network for providing care to those individuals living with dementia. The condition affects around 350,000 Australians, with around 1.2 million people involved in the care of people living with dementia. This system of care costs around $4.9 billion to maintain year on year, with an estimated 175,000 people receiving aged or home care. http://www.homecaring.com.au/

Slide 4:

Professor Yun-Hee Jeon from Sydney Nursing School says that the needs of people in home care situations are often highly complex. She says that “most of them have a number of medical health conditions, as well as physical and functional declines to be addressed”. This pushes the cost of care for those living with dementia, as an interdisciplinary approach is required to keep them healthy. http://www.homecaring.com.au/

Slide 5:

According to Access Economics: Alzheimer’s Australia report, around 65% of people living with dementia in NSW reside in the metropolitan area of Sydney. This is a huge proportion of people, so understandably we might expect the Sydney area to cater for the needs of such individuals. http://www.homecaring.com.au/

Slide 6:

Martina Kane of the Alzheimer’s Society (UK) says that "It is essential that people have access to the right support and services to help them live well with dementia and that research into better care, treatments and eventually a cure remain high on the agenda." Therefore, it is important for Sydney to up the availability of home care in the region, so that more people living with dementia can access the care needed. Linda True man lost her parents to dementia, and says that she was “really impressed with the level of care she [her mother] received”. Making it ever more evident that we need to ensure home care for dementia is readily available. http://www.homecaring.com.au/

Slide 7:

A lack of supply of home care in Sydney has led to concerns that people will not receive adequate care for their dementia. With doctors becoming more competent at diagnosing dementia earlier and rising case numbers across Australia; it is the right time for cities like Sydney to focus funding into providing more home care facilities for individuals living with the dementia. http://www.homecaring.com.au/
