Dementia care excellence in practice

As dementia care can be so overwhelming, we are often asked ‘How can we use My Dementia Companion (MyDC) to deliver quality care in practice and existing workflows?’.


We now have a wonderful article to help illustrate this, which was featured in ACCPA’s Aged Care Today Magazine in partnership with our customer, Astley Care. We thank both organisations for raising awareness for quality care.


Note, MyDC is simple to implement saves staff time and stress, improves care and helps to meet Quality Standards (incl. new Strengthened Standards). Contact us if you would like to learn more.


Short summary

  • Compliance scrutiny on dementia care is increasing and the barrier to quality care is the gap between training and practice for staff

  • You can improve the intake process and how they respond to questions from families by using MyDC’s world-first comprehensive dementia journey, and associated search and share feature

  • MyDC’s Care Pan feature simplifies person-centred care planning by acting as a ‘cheat sheet’ to prompt staff on questions to ask and solutions to implement.

  • Staff activities within MyDC are naturally recorded to save time, evidence care provided, and meet compliance requirements.
