Do you care for someone with dementia?

These three dementia information sessions have been developed to help you understand dementia and get you in touch with supports and services that can help you in your caring role.

Session one: Dementia – an introduction

Thursday, 15 March 2018

Understand what dementia is, its causes and its impact, and learn what supports and services are available to you.

Presented by the Dementia Centre (HammondCare)

Session two: Managing changed behaviours

Thursday, 19 April 2018

Learn why behaviour can change when someone is living with dementia, and learn some strategies to best support them.

Presented by the Dementia Centre (HammondCare)

Session three: Supporting meaningful engagement

Thursday, 24 May 2018

It is important for all of us to be able to do things that are meaningful and give us joy. Having a diagnosis of dementia does not change this. This session will focus on how best to support people living with dementia to participate and engage in activities that are meaningful to them.

Presented by Alissa Westphal, the University of Melbourne
