Dementia Action Week

Dementia Action Week

19 – 25 September 2022

Dementia impacts close to half a million Australians and almost 1.6 million Australians are involved in their care. 

People living with dementia can live active and fulfilling lives many years after diagnosis.

A little support makes a big difference.

The concept for Dementia Action Week was developed in consultation with Dementia Advocates, who have a lived experience of dementia. The ‘A little support makes a big difference’ campaign demonstrates that many people living with dementia can continue to live well for many years after their diagnosis.
