Group Home Model: Doming Dementia Differently

  • Innovating a social model for dementia care 
  • Inverting the organisational structure to empower staffs
  • Adopting a different philosophy of care
  • Allowing residents to age with dignity


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”.
