Throughout September for Dementia Awareness Month, with the theme You Are Not Alone, we are calling on all West Australians to reach out to people with dementia in their community to let them know they are not alone and to find out more about how they can support them.
There are an estimated 39,600 people living with dementia in Western Australia.
Without a significant medical breakthrough, the number of people with dementia is expected to grow to 144,000 Western Australians by 2056.
Alzheimer’s WA provides support for people, of all ages, living with all forms of dementia, their carers and families, and empowers and enables them to live well with dementia.
To find out more about the Services and Support available in Western Australia call 1300 66 77 88.
