Dementia Action Week 2022 – Helping Hand

Dementia Action Week 2022

Dementia Action Week 2022 runs from 19 to 25 September.

Dementia impacts close to half a million Australians and almost 1.6 million Australians are involved in their care. The number of people living with dementia is set to double in the next 25 years.

This year’s Action Week theme is ‘A little support makes a big difference’. We know discrimination has a big impact on people living with dementia, their families and carers, and a little support from the community and health care professionals can make a big difference.

Dementia Australia has fantastic info on their website including tips for information, resources and ideas on how everyone in the community can better support people living with dementia.
