It’s Dementia Awareness Month! During September people are encouraged to find out more about dementia so people living with the condition feel less isolated and alone.
The theme for this year is ‘You are not alone’.
As part of our Dementia Carer Education Project we have developed a booklet of coping strategies for family and friends caring for someone with dementia. All the strategies were shared directly by Carers from their own experiences.
When COVID-19 physical distancing restrictions came in and we were no longer able to hold Carer sessions in person we decided to compile this booklet so that other Carers could still benefit from their advice.
Visit the Dementia Australia website for more information about living with dementia.
