A model of delivering health messages to newly arrived communities
An example, increasing dementia awareness through ethnic radio for newly arrived communities.
This model is based on the findings of the Australian Multicultural Foundation (AMF) Project Memory loss: Disrupting daily life: A national dementia campaign which was a Dementia Community Support Grant Program funded through the Australian Government’s Dementia Initiative, 2009.
Dementia Alliance International (DAI) is a collaboration of like-minded individuals diagnosed with dementia providing a unified voice of strength, advocacy, and support in the fight for individual autonomy for people with dementia.
DAI was established in January 2014 to promote education and awareness about dementia – in order to eradicate stigma and discrimination – and to improve the quality of the lives of people with dementia.
