Alzheimer’s WA is taking a proactive and cautious approach to COVID-19 (coronavirus) as some of our clients and carers may be in the high-risk category for the virus. Our priority is to protect our community including staff, clients and their families, advocates, students, partners and our visitors.
We are monitoring the situation daily and taking advice from the Department of Health. We are ensuring our protocols are best practice and offering alternatives services to our clients, carers, students and partners.
This has an impact on the availability of some services and change of delivery of other services. We are looking at additional ways we can continue to support our clients and adapt to the changing environment that coronavirus has created.
In this time of uncertainty, our focus is on continuing to support our community. Our services continue to ensure carers have a break and our clients have the opportunity to receive therapy, clinical support and socialisation.
We are here to support you and help you in any way we can. Please contact us on 1300 66 77 88 if you need any assistance and we will do our best to help you and/or point you in the right direction.
The dementia journey can be one that is lonely, stressful and tiring. Alzheimer’s WA provides a range of social support and engagement opportunities for people living with dementia, which often help to reduce social isolation and create new friendships. We also strive to provide services to those who care for people living with dementia, to allow them to take a break.
Accessing services that meet both the needs of the person with dementia and their carer is very important. Families often tell us how beneficial our services can be in assisting them throughout the dementia journey.
To discuss the services available to you, please call us on 1300 66 77 88.
