Dementia Action Week is 16 – 22 September
We are excited to announce that Dementia Action Week will be 16-22 September 2019, timed to include World Alzheimer’s Day on 21 September.
This year, Dementia Australia is taking a new approach to the traditionally run awareness campaign throughout September called Dementia Awareness Month. This will now be Dementia Action Week, condensing the activities into seven days between 16-22 September.
Dementia Action Week exists to raise awareness of dementia and the issues that surround dementia.
Our 2019 campaign will start a national conversation to understand community perspectives on discrimination toward people living with dementia. Dementia Australia seeks to reduce the impact of discrimination on people living with dementia, their families and carers.
Dementia Action Week 2019 will play a key role in achieving this goal.
What Dementia Action Week will include:
Activities during Dementia Action Week will include a survey to complete, a large-scale national event to kick off the conversations, and DIY event kits for community organisations and community-minded individuals.
