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 advocate on the basis of evidence-based policy for the needs of people living with all types of dementia, and for their families and carers.

We provide support services around Australia to people impacted by dementia. We also offer education and information to the aged care sector.

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.
