Established in the 1930s, HammondCare is an independent Christian Charity specialising in dementia care, palliative care, rehabilitation, older persons’ mental health and other health and aged services. HammondCare has a particular commitment to dementia care and research as well as to people who are financially disadvantaged. The Dementia Centre is an independent consulting and advising service, provided by HammondCare as part of its commitment to promoting excellence in dementia care. The Dementia Centre offers:

• advice on management
• advice on environmental design
• educational and training programmes
• access to information and contacts
• supporting research that helps define best practice in dementia care.

integratedDESIGNgroup work alongside HammondCare providing architectural expertise during the conduct by The Dementia Centre of environmental design audits of new and existing dementia care facilities using The Dementia Centre’s Dementia Design Audit Tool (DDAT). Their technical and practical advice is a vital part of the audit process and determination of whether a facility meets the necessary requirements for DDAT Endorsement by The Dementia Centre.

(Note: Aged care facilities designed by integratedDESIGNgroup which provide dementia care do not receive automatic DDAT endorsement from The Dementia Centre. DDAT Endorsement of facilities designed by integratedDESIGNgroup is subject to the satisfactory completion of an environmental design audit by HammondCare in accordance with the DDAT and in consultation with an independent third party registered architect.)
