Dementia Australia is the new voice for Alzheimer’s Australia. Our name change allows us to become bigger, stronger and bolder, taking dementia advocacy into a new era.
Our vision is a society committed to the prevention of dementia, while valuing and supporting people living with dementia.
At Dementia Australia we work with people with dementia, their family and carers to understand dementia and put in place strategies to cope. This is provided free of charge.
Dementia is a medical condition and a social one. It attracts stigma, social isolation and personal discrimination. And it affects the whole family
With over 425,000 Australians currently living with dementia, your assistance in helping us make a difference has never been more important.
Until there is a cure, service delivery such as counseling and education will come under increasing pressure to meet the needs of the escalating numbers of Australians living with dementia.
