Gill Ayling (Brisbane) 2015 - Global Action Against Dementia

Gill Ayling, Head of Global Action Against Dementia with the United Kingdom's Health Department, was Dementia Australia's guest speaker for Dementia Awareness Month in 2015.

This recording is from her Brisbane presentation on Global Action Against Dementia.

Homelessness and dementia

The numbers of people diagnosed with dementia increases every week. There are more than 353,800 people in Australia living with dementia. This number is predicted to rise by one third over the next decade. It is also estimated that more than 24,000 younger people are living with dementia.

At the same time significant numbers of Australians are experiencing homelessness.

These are people in vulnerable situations who face great challenges in accessing good brain health interventions and access to robust and appropriate dementia services and support, at a time when they need it most.

The link between dementia and the social causes of the health of homeless people are highlighted in this resource.
