What is the NDIS?
The National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) provides funding to support to people under the age of 65 and living with disability (such as younger onset dementia) to live an ordinary life and achieve their goals. The NDIS also supports families and carers.
If you are living with dementia, and under the age of 65, you can access support from Alzheimer’s WA through the NDIS.
How can Alzheimer’s WA help you?
We understand everyone is different. Every person’s experience with dementia is different. That’s why our services are tailored to help you through your dementia journey.
We see you before the dementia. We will support you to live in your own home for as long as you are able. We can help those around you understand how to support you too. Our services embrace your individuality and help to minimise the impacts of dementia.
