Support when living with dementia
With almost half a million people living with dementia in Australia, and another 1.6 million people involved in their care, it is likely that we are all impacted in some way.
Dementia Action week is an initiative by Dementia Australia to put a spotlight on how to support a person living with dementia. Understanding the experience of dementia, and making a few changes can have a beneficial impact on the person’s quality of life and help them to live more independently.
Visit Dementia Australia’s website at www.dementia.org.au for information and useful tools. And talk to us about the financial aspects of accessing care.
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.
