"I wasn’t expecting to learn this much – about myself, my mother, and about life. About living in the moment. About what is important. About commitment." When Vanessa McQuarrie started caring for her mother Sadie, who is living with dementia, she soon learned to expect the unexpected.

The best living environment for a person with dementia is one where they are enabled to be as happy and independent as possible. The home environment should help them know where they are and to find where they want to go.

Don’t miss the great deals on offer during our Sensory Store's 2018 New Year’s sale ... People typically get sensory stimulation all day long; at home, on the street, when cooking or when socialising with friends. However, this is not always the case for people living in long term care facilities, or with a diagnosis of #dementia.

Sensory stimulation is a key component for continuing or improving the quality of life of people with dementia, and for those who are in long term care.

The Dementia Australia Sensory Store stocks a wide-range of sensory, therapeutic and reminiscence resources which are perfect for aiding sensory stimulation activities.

Popular resources such as our companion pets, reminiscence cue cards and calendar clocks are designed specifically to stimulate one or more of the five senses, and are on-sale now at thesensorystore.com.au

New year, new you? There really is no better time to start committing to looking after your brain health!

We hope you’ve had a wonderful time over the recent holiday period, but we know this time of year can be challenging for people impacted by dementia.

This New Year we are calling on the community to support the wishes of people living with dementia, their families and carers.

Dementia Australia needs the support of the community to continue to provide the services and programs that empower and enable all Australians living with dementia to experience the best possible care, lifestyle and health outcomes.

For many their ‘Christmas wish’ is to have their loved ones with them, engaged in the festivities and surrounded by family and friends. For some, it’s about the importance of giving back (link in our bio). The great news is it’s not too late to make a donation! If you are able, visit www.dementia.org.au or call 1300 636 679 to show your support.

Christmas provides unique opportunities for families and friends to come together and make memories.
These occasions can be particularly meaningful if you have a loved one with dementia. This year, make sure you record these moments by taking lots of videos and photos!
And, if you're looking for a bit of extra support over the holidays, call our National Dementia Helpline on 1800 100 500 to speak to somebody who understands. #dementia #carers

Happy holidays! And best wishes for 2018. Thank you to all our followers for your support over the past year. We have loved all the comments, questions, and personal stories you have shared as part of our growing community.

The social media team will be taking a break next week, and our pages will not be monitored until we return early in the New Year.

Please note the National Dementia Helpline will remain open throughout the holiday period, Monday-Friday during regular business hours (excluding public holidays). For any emergencies, as always, please dial 000.

Thank you again and we look forward to an exciting new year with your continued support!


This Christmas you might be planning to spend time with a relative or friend with #dementia.
You may not have seen them for a while and the fact they might not remember names or faces is a sad reality that you may need to be prepared for. Try to support the person's memory by simply saying who you are and where you fit into the family rather than asking them "Do you remember me?" Try to connect with them through discussing old memories that will be easier for them to access.
Extra support or advice is on hand ... call our National Dementia Helpline on 1800 100 500 to speak to one of our trained experts. #dementia #carers

If you're in charge of the annual Christmas get-together this year, make sure you pick a location suitable for any members of your party who have dementia.
