Organiser

Alzheimer's WA

As the dementia experts Alzheimer’s WA works with those living with dementia and the organisations that care and support them, to have the greatest beneficial impact on their dementia journey.

Our client services, advocacy work , training and consultancy programs are based on a philosophy of understanding the lived experience of dementia. We are guided by people living with dementia and our approach views dementia as a holistic experience for the person rather than just a biological illness.

Our wide range of dementia specialised support services includes respite, counselling, education and social programmes available to people living with dementia as well as their families and carers.

Alzheimer’s WA also works in partnership with community, aged, health and disability providers. Our capacity building model brings our dementia expertise to support the development of your services and environments through training, consultancy and client service brokerage.
