What’s Available in Your Community

It is possible for people diagnosed with dementia to live well with the illness – provided they get support, and that the people who are supporting them do too.

People with dementia can still try new things, stay involved in their local communities and favourite activities, and develop new friendships and interests.

Please find below a list of Dementia Support Groups for people living with dementia, their families and carers that are supported by Ozcare’s Dementia Advisors.
