Connect through art this Dementia Action Week
Published 22 August 2022
Dementia impacts around half a million Australians and almost 1.6 million Australians are involved in the care of a person with dementia.
This Dementia Action Week, 19-25 September, we're highlighting local services available for people with dementia, their family and carers and encouraging locals to get a better understanding of dementia and what they can do to help make our local area more dementia-friendly.
Watsons Bay Library has been recognised by Dementia Australia as a dementia-friendly community space.
The Woollahra Dementia Alliance, supported by Woollahra Council and Holdsworth Community, helps to raise awareness of issues faced by local people with dementia and taking actions to improve the lives of people with dementia and their carers.
