As part of capability building and alignment of training standards for the Community Mental Health Care Professionals, the Agency for Integrated Care worked with clinicians and community practitioners to develop two competency frameworks, namely Mental Health Competency Framework and Dementia Care Competency Framework.
The competency frameworks look into:

What is Dementia, its types, and risk factors
AIC has set up a Dementia Practitioners (DPs) CoP to enable practitioners to learn from each other and build capabilities in dementia care. The CoP provides a platform to upskill existing staff to facilitate the transition of GDDCs to the merged DDC service, and aims to support all DPs in delivering quality centre-based dementia care and produce a centre-based dementia care guidelines for DPs.
You may access information regarding the Community of Practice for Dementia Practitioners below:
CoP Session 1
To help care professionals manage behaviours of concern, a booklet of 11 sample case scenarios has been collated to provide suggestions to help you manage the different cases in the community.
To help mental health/dementia care professionals cement learning concepts and demonstrate application of skills, two localised videos have been produced that focus on ‘Engaging Resistant Clients’ and ‘De-escalating Conflicts’ via a total of 6 case scenarios. Watch them here.
This video is to empower community partners and individuals in setting up a Caregiver Support Network that emphasises self-care, peer support and recognising caregivers’ well-being in the community.
This video is to empower partners in setting up a Go-To Point that serves as a “resource centre” and “safe return” point where members of the public can bring persons living with dementia who may be lost for help.
We have also organised online learning webinars to share best practices such as Dementia-Friendly Environment Design and inviting care professionals to share experiences. Learn more
Based on feedback to AIC, most caregivers do not know where to search nor have time to read through the many resources. As such, AIC has put together a top 5 curated list of resources for caregivers which you can share with them. While the top 5 curated resources provide quick help, we do recognise that partners may need support in sieving out the relevant resources for the caregivers. Complementing the top 5 resources, a consolidated listing of resources has also been pulled together to address the varied needs of the caregivers.
