Dementia Awareness Month
Dementia Awareness Month runs from 1st September to 30th September every year
The purpose of Dementia Awareness Month is to encourage Australias to become dementia-aware, have a better understanding of what it is like for a person to live with dementia, and ultimately be encouraged to create communities where people with dementia are supported to live a high quality of life with meaning, purpose, and value.
The theme for 2017 is ‘YOU ARE NOT ALONE’ and the main activities will be a series of seminars with international and local dementia experts and key note speakers.
If you are worried about dementia – You are not alone
Dementia is the most feared and biggest health issue facing Australians.
Learning about dementia and the support services available can
empower and enable people impacted to live well.
