Dementia and Homelessness: Literature Review

The area of homelessness and dementia is one of the Australian Government’s key priorities areas. The Victoria and Tasmania Dementia Training Study Centre (DTSC) has responsibility for exploring the issues related to dementia in homeless populations. The basis on which the Vic/Tas DTSC undertook this literature review was to explore the issues relating to dementia in homeless populations with a particular focus on the dementia education needs of health professionals working with homeless people. A preliminary search yielded limited information on the topic and therefore a more in-depth examination of the literature was warranted.
