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.
People with a diagnosis of dementia experience many changes to their day-to-day lives, which can lead to a sense of loss of meaning and purpose.
The Volunteering Program enables people to connect into communities and break down stigmas associated with the condition whilst also keeping physically, mentally and socially active. The program allows people to feel valued while also providing structure and embracing spontaneity. Each day presents opportunities to build new relationships with people and the surrounding environment.
The program is available in Perth metropolitan and Mandurah areas.
The Volunteering Program is available through Home and Community Care, Commonwealth Home Support Program, Home Care Packages, National Disability Insurance Scheme or can be self-funded on a private basis.
If you would like to attend or find out more about the Volunteering Program, please contact our customer service team on 1300 66 77 88 or email us.
