Dementia Advisory Service
Welcome to the Dementia Advisory Service webpage, sometimes referred to as DAS.
Under the Dementia Strategy, in NSW Government Health’s ‘Future Directions for Dementia Care and Support in NSW 2001-2006’, St Vincent’s Hospital, Sydney Ltd has been funded to provide a Dementia Advisory Service to the Eastern Sydney HACC Area. This service commenced operation in May 2005.
The Dementia Advisory Service receives funding from the Department of Ageing, Disability & Home Care (DADHC) through the Home and Community Care Program, and is managed by St Vincent’s Community Health Service.
The service works closely with the Dementia staff located at St Vincent’s and Prince of Wales Community Health Services, along with Service Providers who conduct Dementia-specific Service Provision.
