The Dementia Centre is the heart of excellence in dementia expertise. We exist to improve the quality of life for people with dementia, their families and those who provide their care. Founded in 1995, our approach is proven in practice, defining and informing the provision of care worldwide.

Everyone deserves the best care, so we offer expert advice to people at all levels – from CEOs to architects and designers, the aged- and dementia-care workforce, to medical professionals, support staff, and family carers in the home.

Dementia Australia

Dementia Australia is the source of trusted information, education and services for the estimated half a million Australians living with dementia, and the almost 1.6 million people involved in their care. We advocate for positive change and support vital research. 

 

We are here to support people impacted by dementia, and to enable them to live as well as possible. Founded by carers more than 35 years ago, today we are the national peak body for people living with dementia, their families and carers.

 

No matter how you are impacted by dementia or who you are, we are here for you.

The global voice on dementia

Tackling dementia requires a truly global and local effort. During World Alzheimer’s Month, we support and work with Alzheimer and dementia associations in 120 countries, as well as people living with dementia, carers and all relevant organisations to help raise awareness, challenge stigma and to call for dementia to be the global health priority it needs to be.

Bold Scotland

There are many misconceptions about living with dementia and we want to change that.

We imagine a Scotland where having dementia doesn’t matter for who we are as people or how we live our lives. A lot of people feel the same and are already taking the lead and making positive contributions to support people living with dementia.

 

bold is an innovative programme bringing diverse types of leaders together on an equal footing. It provides free leadership opportunities across Scotland to help those living with dementia flourish and make a difference.
