Dementia Australia, who represent the 447,115 Australians living with dementia and the almost 1.5 million Australians involved in their caresays  

A dementia-friendly community can be described as a city, town or village where people with dementia are understood, respected and supported, and confident they can contribute to community life. In a dementia-friendly community people will understand dementia, and people with dementia will feel included and involved, and have choice and control over their day-to-day lives.

Please join the team at Andrew Kerr Care on Thursday 20th August 2019 to learn more about dementia-friendly communities in Mornington Peninsula. Limited Spaces, so please register here for this free event by clicking here.

Hosted by Andrew Kerr Care, this free community event will review how to stay involved, promote our community and much more! 

Dementia-friendly communities encourage organisations, businesses, community groups and individuals to make practical changes that will have a positive impact on the lives of people living with dementia and their carers. 

The essence of a dementia-friendly community is to support people with dementia to be involved in activities and opportunities for social engagement that provide meaning and purpose in their lives for as long as possible. Social and community groups play a key role in facilitating this.
