A service for people living with a diagnosis of dementia or cognitive impairment and their carers.

Care Partnership Australia Pty Ltd

Care Partnerships Australia believe that every person should live with dignity as they age. Our aged care services aim to maximise the human rights and choices for people living with dementia and cognitive decline. We deliver aged care services with compassion and integrity.

We offer a private, fee for service aged care consultancy to help you or your loved ones to live well as you age. We offer an in-home consultation that provides information about how to live well with dementia. We create an assessment and care plan, and a communication guide that helps you to speak to and understand your loved one when communication is difficult after a diagnosis of dementia.

Michelle Harris-Allsop, Founder: Advance care planning is an approach which plans to improve the quality of life of my clients and their families even when they are facing the problems associated with life-threatening illness or a disability like a type of dementia.
