Dementia Action Week - Show your support

Dementia Action Week / 16–22 September 2019

Formerly Dementia Awareness Month, this year Dementia Australia is bringing you Dementia Action Week from the 16 to 22 September to include World Alzheimer’s Day on the 21 September.

The theme for Dementia Action Week is Dementia doesn’t discriminate. Do you?

We’re inviting the community to join in a conversation about  discrimination and dementia. We’ll also be sharing a survey later this month to gain important insights into this issue.

You can create or attend events to play a part in the conversation about discrimination and dementia during Dementia Action Week. Perhaps you’d like to host a morning tea, a gathering of family and friends, a display in your community, or a creative event. It’s up to you! Simply use the links below so that you have everything you need to create your Dementia Action Week event.
