Thank you for your interest in Community Café Toolkit: Your manual and tools for establishing a café for people living with dementia.

The toolkit contains:

Continence Foundation of Australia

The mission of the Continence Foundation of Australia is to represent the interests of Australians affected by, or at risk of, bladder and bowel control problems and act as an advocate for their interests.

The Continence Foundation of Australia exists to serve all Australians by promoting bladder and bowel health. This will be achieved by:

COTA National Seniors

COTA Australia is the peak national organisation representing the rights, needs and interests of older Australians. COTA Australia is the national policy and advocacy arm of the COTA Federation which comprises COTAs in each State and Territory. COTA Australia focuses on policy issues from the perspective of older people as citizens and consumers.

 

Delirium Clinical Care Standard

The Delirium Clinical Care Standard provides guidance to consumers, clinicians and health services on delivering appropriate care to people at risk of, or with, delirium.

Delirium is an acute change in mental status that is common among older people in hospital. Characterised by a disturbance of consciousness, attention, cognition and perception that develops over a short period of time (usually hours to a few days), delirium is a serious condition and is associated with increased risk of harm.

Delivering health messages to newly arrived communities

A model of delivering health messages to newly arrived communities

An example, increasing dementia awareness through ethnic radio for newly arrived communities.

This model is based on the findings of the Australian Multicultural Foundation (AMF) Project Memory loss: Disrupting daily life: A national dementia campaign which was a Dementia Community Support Grant Program funded through the Australian Government’s Dementia Initiative, 2009.

Dementia Alliance International

Dementia Alliance International (DAI) is a collaboration of like-minded individuals diagnosed with dementia providing a unified voice of strength, advocacy, and support in the fight for individual autonomy for people with dementia.

DAI was established in January 2014 to promote education and awareness about dementia – in order to eradicate stigma and discrimination – and to improve the quality of the lives of people with dementia.

Dementia and chronic conditions series toolkit

There is increasing evidence that a number of different chronic conditions are associated with the development of cognitive impairment and dementia.

The Dementia and Chronic Conditions Series Toolkits are designed to improve support for people living with cognitive impairment or dementia and other chronic conditions. These resources will assist people working in the community, partners, families and carers to provide better support to the person in areas such as diagnosis of dementia and on-going management of their health.
