Imagine being treated differently just because you have been diagnosed with a disease like cancer or diabetes.  

This is often the reality for people living with dementia, their families and carers. 

Dementia Australia research shows 81 per cent of those with a loved one living with dementia felt that people in shops, cafes and restaurants treated people with dementia differently. 

That’s why this Dementia Action Week we're encouraging everyone to take a few simple actions to create a dementia-friendly future for all Australians. Find information, resources and tips on how to get started below.
