Suitable for: Family carers and family members of people living with dementia. This program is not suitable for professionals employed in the health or aged care sectors. 

This session covers an introduction to dementia and the changes in behaviour and communication which can be caused by dementia. We also teach communication strategies and a problem solving approach to enable carers to better manage these changes. We look at carer support and managing stress.

Organiser Dementia Australia

Organiser of Managing the Changes - Geelong - VIC

Dementia Australia is the source of trusted information, education and services for the estimated half a million Australians living with dementia, and the almost 1.6 million people involved in their care. We advocate for positive change and support vital research.

We are here to support people impacted by dementia, and to enable them to live as well as possible. No matter how you are impacted by dementia or who you are, we are here for you.

Founded by carers more than 35 years ago, today we are the national peak body for people living with dementia, their families and carers.

We involve people impacted by dementia and their experiences in our activities and decision-making, to make sure we are representative of the diverse range of dementia experiences. We amplify the voices of people impacted by dementia through advocating and sharing stories to help inform and inspire others.

For more information on the services we offer and advice on dementia please contact the National Dementia Helpline on 1800 100 500 Monday to Friday, 8am-8pm (except public holidays).
