What we do

We are here to provide education, support, information, advocacy and awareness.

Education, support, information, advocacy and awareness are the five main areas through which we help to make the lives of people with dementia a little bit easier.

We assist carers and families of people with dementia to manage the daily challenges that dementia brings.

We work with care staff and students to deliver best practice in dementia care. We also teach the community about the benefits of a healthy lifestyle in helping to reduce dementia risk.
