service coordination Service coordination is the next step in the process, where the support services that are identified are coordinated and put in place for the person with dementia. With the permission of the individual being assessed, where possible, the service coordinator uses the information from the assessment to explore all options that might be helpful. They then help coordinate these services. As part of this, the person with dementia and the people who care for them will be asked what solutions they think will help them. If residential care is recommended, the service coordinator will let you know what level of attention the assessment shows is appropriate for the person concerned. They will also help you prioritise what’s important, discuss available options, and provide a list of residential facilities for your consideration. P L A N N I N G | 2 3
