Dementia Awareness Month


Together we can… help ensure no one faces dementia alone

September is Dementia Awareness Month and this year’s theme Together we can… help ensure no one faces dementia alone highlights the need for all Western Australians to reach out to people with dementia in their community to let them know they are not alone.

Dementia is second leading cause of death of Australians and the leading cause of death among Australian females. There are many ways you can become involved in Dementia Awareness Month to show your support.
