Dementia impacts close to half a million Australians and almost 1.6 million Australians are involved in their care.
People living with dementia can live active and fulfilling lives many years after diagnosis. Despite this, they often experience discrimination. Whether you are a friend, family member or healthcare professional, there are small but significant things that anyone can do to support someone living with dementia.
Carers need a little bit of support too. Why not use this Dementia Action Week to celebrate a carer or share some tips for self care to show them how much you appreciate everything they do?
Coronavirus (COVID-19) has changed everyone’s lives. People are feeling disconnected and anxious. Familiar routines have stopped and these changes can impact the moods, behaviours and health of people living with dementia. We have created a series of resources to help during this difficult time.
