Dementia Australia is working to build a dementia-friendly community in Australia.
Our public information sessions are delivered by professional educators in a supportive environment. Our community awareness sessions are designed to raise awareness of dementia and reduce the stigma surrounding it. The sessions may also have a more specific focus, such as providing strategies to maintain brain health, helping people better understand how memory works, and when memory changes need to be investigated.
We provide a range of programs to increase awareness of dementia and related issues in the community. With our community growing more conscious of dementia, we have developed awareness programs to dispel myths about dementia and provide better understanding of memory and ageing.
As part of our community education sessions, we also provide a series of community seminars twice a year. These feature more targeted topics presented at various locations in Melbourne and regional Victoria which are open to all.
