A uniquely focused non-clinical social care concept for People with Dementia.

Group Home Model: Doming Dementia Differently
Tamar Krebs has been immersed in the field of people
living with dementia for most of her adult life. Academically trained, with degrees from several
universities, her skills and experience come from hands-on problem solving in
Israel and Australia. In a career spanning over two decades, Tamar has worked
in establishments where standards ranged from ‘shockingly inadequate’ to those
where residents experienced near ‘5-star hotel’ treatment. She understands the
needs of older people, particularly those living with dementia, and this led to
her believing there had to be ‘a better way’. This belief led to her founding
Group Homes Australia, where 6-8 residents living beyond a diagnosis of
dementia live in a home in their local community where they engage in life. Just three
words define her clear objective: “Doing Dementia Differently”.
Ageing Asia is an Ageing Market Consultancy Social Enterprise with the mission to change the way we age in Asia Pacific. We facilitate collaborations and strategic partnerships between CEO-level business, government and community leaders to access Asia Pacific’s US$3.3 trillion silver industry through a combination of in-depth industry research and networking with key decision makers in the business of ageing.
We also provide consulting to organisations seeking global best practices in housing, health and care models that can be translated for the Asian market place. Each event organised by Ageing Asia allocates at least 10% of the revenue to sponsor participants in not-for-profit sectors with free tickets and discounted rates to the events. Our charity initiative is the Art for Seniors Project that we developed to promote intergenerational bonding and interaction, and to brighten nursing homes through art.
