Dementia Advocates

People living with dementia and carers can provide a powerful voice for change and a perspective on dementia no one else can provide. As a Dementia Advocate, you will join others living with dementia in the Dementia Advocate Programme and become an influential voice that can make a big difference in the WA community.

Your Voice Matters

Alzheimer’s WA values your voice and encourages you to share your story about dementia.

This helps to:

  • Hear the voice of the consumer.
  • Raise awareness of dementia and its impact on families.
  • Increase community understanding about living with dementia.
  • Reduce the stigma associated with dementia in our society.
  • Help government and service providers recognise the needs of people living with dementia, their carers and their families.

How can a Dementia Advocate help?

As a Dementia Advocate, you can become involved through:

  • Sharing your dementia story with the media (radio, television, print and online)
  • Speaking at forums, educational sessions and public events.
  • Helping researchers find better ways to support people living with dementia.
  • Using your experience to help improve services and government discussions.
  • Sharing your story to assist with fundraising campaigns.
