Diversity in Dementia Awareness Month

During Dementia Awareness Month in September Dementia Australia ran a national communications campaign that was culturally targeted, diverse and appropriate.

There were print, radio and digital advertisements that were translated into Chinese, Greek, Indian, Italian and Vietnamese to raise awareness about dementia.

In addition to the advertising campaign consumers were involved in sharing their knowledge and experience of dementia in their own languages with SBS radio throughout the month.

Danijela Hlis, who cared for her mother who had dementia, spoke with the SBS about dementia in Slovenian. Danijela discussed the effects of dementia on people of all ages and races and how it can be treated to help prolong the quality of life of people living with dementia.

If you speak Slovenian you can listen to Danijela’s SBS radio interview here

Dementia Australia would like to thank all those who assisted us with raising awareness during Dementia Awareness Month.
