Dementia Action Week is an initiative from Dementia Australia.
There are great deal of resources available with information on the following:
- Dementia Helpline
- Living with dementia
- Families and carers
- Early onset dementia
New research from Dementia Australia shows that 81 per cent of people who have a family member with dementia noticed they were treated differently when they went to stores, cafes, or restaurants. That’s why, during this year’s Dementia Action Week, everyone is being asked to do some easy things to make a future where people with dementia are treated better in Australia.
Most people with dementia live in our communities, but many people don’t know much about dementia. This lack of knowledge sometimes causes people with dementia to be treated unfairly or differently. This Dementia Action Week, we want everyone to take simple steps to make our communities more friendly for people with dementia.
There are many tips for people in the community including healthcare professionals. Visit the Dementia Australia website for more information: https://www.dementia.org.au/education.
