Alzheimer's Australia

Alzheimer's Australia provides a range of sensitive and flexible services to support people with any type of dementia, their families and carers throughout the illness. These services include information about dementia, a 24-hour Dementia Helpline, an Interpreter Service, support groups for people who have been diagnosed with dementia, private and confidential counselling, and other local programs. Services differ slightly between the state organisations. The website of Alzheimer's Australia contains useful 'Help sheets for family and carers' on such topics as communication, driving, going to hospital, wandering, pain, safety issues, etc.
