Dementia Awareness Month

September is Dementia Awareness Month, and this year's theme is "You Are Not Alone." It seeks to highlight the supports and services available for people with dementia and their carers, and to encourage the general public to become more dementia aware.

You can find out more at Alzheimer's Australia, and HealthDirect has published some informative and educational videos exploring dementia, its symptoms, effects, caring for someone with dementia, and respite care.
