Mallee Track Health and Community Service - Dementia awareness

September is Dementia Awareness Month, and this year’s theme 'You are not alone' was chosen by consumers who often tell Dementia Australia that a diagnosis of dementia can be an isolating and lonely experience due to a lack of understanding, education and awareness about the condition.

This Dementia Awareness Month aims to break down some of those barriers and stigma to create more inclusive, kind and accepting communities where people with dementia, their families and carers can feel well-supported, less isolated and alone.

Dementia Australia’s research with the broader community shows that there is a prevailing attitude that people living with dementia are overwhelmingly very old, frail and living in care. This has been reinforced by consultation with advocates where their experiences confirm that once diagnosed with dementia there is a perception that they have a complete loss of function and independence. 

These misconceptions lead to judgements by the community about the capacity of a person living with dementia and condescending behaviours. Such beliefs cause significant discrimination against people living with dementia. 

Dementia Action Week 21-27 September 2020 will demonstrate that many people living with dementia can continue to live well for many years after their diagnosis. Many continue to make significant contributions to our community, they engage, make their own choices and live rich and active lives.
