dc.description.abstractAs the number of people with dementia increases attention needs to be focused on establishing effective early intervention support options. This project involves the modification, delivery and evaluation of an innovative early intervention support model for people with early stage dementia and their caregivers. The project was developed in partnership with Griffith University and University of New South Wales and co-ordinated by Spiritus, a not for profit community service organisation. This presentation provides an overview of a person and family centred early intervention model, the stages of its development and implementation and the challenges and lesson learnt during these stages. This intervention as it engages the person with dementia and their caregiver during the period of early diagnosis whilst the person with dementia is still able to participate in discussion regarding their care. The intervention encourages the development of relationships that are based on mutual regard and respect which are advantageous for both participants and staff involved in a community service delivery. The challenges and lessons discussed include service structure, recruitment, maintain intervention consistency and sustainability.en_US
