Faces of dementia

Meet the Faces of Dementia – just some of the people who work in the dementia industry.
Each person adds their own individual experience and expertise to keep Dementia Australia doing what it does best; providing support to everyone impacted by dementia including those living with dementia, their families and carers.
One thing all of these people have in common is a strong belief in the importance of representing everybody impacted by dementia. This drives their determination to help provide vital support and resources that carry people through what can be the toughest of times.

Your donation can help Dementia Australia support people impacted by dementia, their friends and families.
