Event description

Description

An estimated 436,000 Australians are living with dementia. It impacts the individual living with the condition as well as their loved ones who often provide the support and care.

People living with dementia can find it challenging to participate actively in the community due, in part, to a lack knowledge or understanding of the condition and how it can impact people.

Join Chris Racar, Policy & Project Officer, Aged Services from Community Industry Group as she delivers Dementia Australia 'Dementia Friends' program, and in doing so, outlines individual actions you can undertake to support people with dementia to remain included, accepted and connected with their community.

We will also discuss how organisations can become 'Dementia Friendly' and what resources are available in developing a 'Dementia Friendly Action Plan' for organisations.
