Dementia Australia SA Div  Dementia Australia is the national peak body for people of all ages living with all forms of dementia, their families & carers.

A message for all our Instagram followers ... as many of you will already know, last October we took the exciting step of unifying our organisation, so now Dementia Australia divisions across states and territories are working together as one national body. For that reason, THIS ACCOUNT IS NOW CLOSED and we have merged our different state-based Instagram pages into our Dementia Australia national Instagram page, providing one central source of information for all Australians.

So ... what do we need you to do? If you’re not already, please make sure you’re following the Dementia Australia national Instagram page to continue receiving our important dementia-related updates. We look forward to continuing having you as part of our Instagram community long into the future.

This National Men’s Health Week, Australian communities and organisations have been busy hosting events to promote the health of men and boys. That's because, for a variety of reasons, the health status of males in most countries, including Australia, is generally poorer than that of females.

Dementia Australia is encouraging all Australian men to adopt a proactive approach to their health and wellbeing by taking periodic health assessments, especially when it comes to the possible symptoms of dementia.

Dementia is a condition that currently affects more than 191,000 Australian men. While there is no cure, there have been important medical milestones in dementia research that have led to breakthroughs in the early detection of dementia, and improved management of the associated symptoms.

Dementia Australia provides a range of programs and services to help people working with or caring for people living with dementia enhance the quality of their life.

For more information on how you can access our services and programs please contact the National Dementia Helpline on 1800 100 500 or visit dementia.org.au

Children and teens of all ages impacted by a diagnosis of dementia in their family can find information and support at Dementia Australia's dementiainmyfamily.org.au website.

The website is full of colourful, interactive, age-appropriate content and provides dementia-related education through videos, games, quizzes and the shared experiences of other kids in similar circumstances.

We are delighted the Federal Minister for Aged Care, The Hon. Ken Wyatt MP, has signed up to become a Dementia Friend at www.dementiafriendly.org.au and has called for all Members of Parliament around Australia to do the same.

The Dementia Friends program, developed by Dementia Australia, is a free online learning tool which assists people to increase their understanding of dementia and learn how they can better support the people around them in their community who are impacted by dementia.

Did you know that if you smoke tobacco, you may be increasing your risk of #dementia? As well as increasing your risk of cardiovascular disease, it is believed that smokers have an 80% higher risk of dementia.
-
Today, World No Tobacco Day, is a great opportunity to quit forever. Former smokers do not have an increased risk of dementia when compared to those who have never smoked tobacco. Quitting today will improve the health of your heart and your brain and help you live an overall happier and healthier life!

For help to quit smoking, visit your GP, or call Quitline on 13 78 48.

National Volunteer Week May 21 – 27 is a time to show appreciation to the more than 6 million people who volunteer their time to support various causes and charities in Australia.
-
Dementia Australia is fortunate to have 1,145 volunteers who support us in a number of ways, making the work we do for people living with dementia possible. Quite simply, we couldn’t do it without them! The theme this year, “Give a little. Change a Lot”, is dedicated to one our youngest volunteers, Esther. Esther recently volunteered her time to hold a successful cake stall in her front yard.
-
Thanks to the support of her community, Esther raised an impressive $730 which she donated to Dementia Australia in loving memory of her Grandmother, Denise, who passed away after living with #dementia, aged 73.

In March, @adelaide_fc midfielder @bgibbsy4 ‘lost his locks’ in support of the Crows Children's Foundation and Dementia Australia.

Now that fundraising has ended, Dementia Australia would like to take the opportunity to thank Bryce for his massive support in raising $13,483.46 and helping us to provide advocacy, support services, education and information to Australians living with #dementia.
