Caladenia Dementia Care

Caladenia Dementia Care is located in Outer East Melbourne and provides social support programs and recreation opportunities for people living with all stages of dementia, as well as support, advocacy and referral for carers.

On March 18th 2020 Caladenia suspended face to face social support programs due to the Covid-19 pandemic. Management and staff responded quickly and adapted many of their face to face programs to the online environment to help their clients and carers stay socially connected.

The Eastern Sector Development Team (ESDT) invited Sarah Yeates, Caladenia CEO to speak about their response, and how Caladenia has developed new and innovative ways to deliver online programs to clients and their carers. Sarah also reflects on how these changes can be carried forward into the future to meet the needs of both clients and carers.
