September was Dementia Awareness Month, which encouraged all Australians to become aware of dementia.
Dementia is not one specific disease. There are many different diseases which cause dementia that can affect your thinking, behaviour and ability to perform everyday tasks.
Early diagnosis and access to support, information and medication can make a significant and positive difference.
Dementia Australia offers support, information, education and counselling through the National Dementia Helpline on 1800 100 500.
As a community, we can all play an important role helping people with dementia to feel valued and supported.
Suncare’s D Cafés provide the opportunity for people living with dementia and their carers to socialise in a supportive environment.
If you would like to know more, please contact our Customer Service Team on 1800 786 227.
