Tamar Krebs has been immersed in the field of people living with dementia for the last 22 years. 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 6-10 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”.
