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.
