If you are living with early stage dementia or are a family carer for someone with dementia, you are welcome to join this early intervention program. You will get information and support through sharing your experiences with a small group of others in a similar situation.

Research shows this type of program can reduce the sense of isolation, distress and depression and increase the self esteem of people with or caring for someone with dementia, increase knowledge of local services and gain positive perceptions of dementia.

Participants must have a diagnosis of dementia or be accompanying a person with a diagnosis of dementia. You do NOT need to be part of the local council area to attend the program. The program is free and runs for five weeks on a Wednesday from 20 February to 20 March.

For more information and to register your interest please call the National Dementia Helpline on 1800 100 500 (ask to be referred on to the WA Team) or visit the Dementia Australia website.
