“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.”

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.
