Dementia Australia is working to educate the public and build dementia-friendly communities across the country.
Our community sessions are designed to raise awareness of dementia and reduce the stigma and discrimination surrounding it. We also offer session focused on brain health which provide strategies to maintain brain health and reduce the risk of dementia, helping people better understand how memory works, and when memory changes may need to be investigated. All sessions are delivered by Dementia Australia's highly experienced facilitators who specialise in the delivery of education and support related to dementia.
