Communities in action
Around Australia, individuals, groups, businesses and alliances are making their communities more dementia-friendly. By working with people living with dementia, their families and carers, we can all create a more inclusive community.
See how community action can help people living with dementia stay connected.
Dementia Friend, Tom Wattison is currently completing a Certificate 4 in Community services with TAFE NSW through Macksville TAFE and also studying online With UTAS a Diploma in Dementia Care.
Dementia Australia Bendigo office inconjunction with the Treehouse-Kyneton District Health had the wonderful opportunity to present the Dementia Friends presentation at the Kyneton Primary school.
The design of a building can change the way we engage and interact, move around, and even our mood.
A new dementia-friendly space at QSA was opened by Ms Sandra Nugent, Dementia Australia Regional Director of Western Australia and Queensland, this morning.
Kyneton District Health was recently named a ‘Dementia Friendly Organisation’ and the lovely ladies at the Treehouse couldn’t be happier!
We hope you will join us at our upcoming LGBTI and Dementia information session on Tuesday 16th of October at 5:45pm in Brunswick Heads.
