Dementia Friendly Towns
The scale of these projects are the first of their kind in Australia
Manjimup and York were pilot sites for Australia’s first ever Dementia Friendly Community towns in their entirety. Alzheimer’s WA is currently working with Margaret River and Toodyay to help them become dementia friendly towns. The learnings from these towns will inform future Dementia Friendly Communities initiatives.
The Dementia Friendly Communities project is funded by the WA Country Health Service as part of the Southern Inland Health Initiative.
