Hope and support for dementia caregivers
A dementia diagnosis can be overwhelming, but no one has to go through it alone. Imogen found hope and support through Dementia Australia. Our information services provided her with tools to understand and manage her father's behaviours. And when it was time for her father to transition to an aged care facility, Dementia Australia was there to support the process.
"I finally felt hopeful after being completely overwhelmed for so long. Now, I have a clearer perspective on my dad's behaviours and he's having a more positive experience living with dementia because I'm better educated to support him.”
Your help can give life-changing support to families like Imogen’s.
You can make a difference today.

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.
