Georgina and Mum, Shelley.

Support and compassion to uphold a promise

The words hit Georgina hard: her mum Shelley had younger onset dementia. Despite the shock, she knew things could have been far worse without the support of Dementia Australia. Grateful and empowered, Georgina was able to keep her promise to her mother.

Dementia Australia is a place where specialist support, education and research are helping people stay connected and live well with this heartbreaking condition.

“At her support group, Mum made friends and learnt it was ok: there were other people going through this too. I could also find out about all the support available to me as a carer. This was crucial in getting the best for Mum.”

With your donation today, you're not just giving money, you're funding research, support services and hope. You're making promises come true.

Dementia in numbers

The number of people living with dementia in Australia continues to grow at an alarming rate.

400,000 Australians live with dementia, and that is expected to increase to more than 800,000 by 2058.

Today, dementia is the second leading cause of death in Australia, and the leading-cause of death in women.

1.5 million carers, family members and friends are involved in the care of someone living with dementia.
