Discrimination can take many forms and is often unintentional. The language you use, the way to relate to people behaving in a way you don’t understand, avoiding people who have dementia and not talking directly to people living with dementia, are all forms of discrimination. By understanding what forms discrimination can take, you can recognise these actions for what they are and choose to act differently. 

Choose a doorway to improve your knowledge about dementia and be part of reducing discrimination towards Australians living with dementia.
