Dementia

Australia

Giving people with dementia the respect they deserve and the support they need.

Dementia Australia is a rapidly growing, non-profit organisation operating across the country.

Dementia Australia represents the 477, 115 Australians living with dementia and the almost 1.5 million Australians involved in their care. Dementia is the second leading cause of death in Australia and there is no cure.

All funds raised through Memory Walk & Jog goes to support Dementia Australia’s work.

Dementia services, advocacy and research

We are the lead national advocate for dementia policy, working with both government and industries. We’re also in local communities around the country, where we raise awareness and understanding of dementia.

We provide services around Australia. We help anyone who works with people with dementia, their families and carers. This involves providing support services, education and information.

We also work tirelessly with the best researchers in the country. Together, we’re on a mission to find treatments, slow the progression, improve diagnosis and ultimately cure dementia.
