September is Dementia Awareness Month


Did you know that September is Dementia Awareness Month?
The theme this year is ” You are not alone” and it aims to highlight the supports and services available for people with dementia and their carers as well as encourage the general public to become more dementia aware.
To help generate dementia awareness Healthdirect Australia ( the national health information and advice service funded by the Australian Government) has published a page of informative and educational videos exploring dementia, its symptoms and effects, caring for someone with dementia and respite care. You can view these videos and help spread awareness by following the link below:
