Ageing successfully NBDA May 2023

The Northern Beaches Dementia Alliance aims to create a Dementia-Friendly Community:

  • A place where people living with dementia are supported to live a high quality of life with meaning and purpose.
  • A place where people living with dementia are understood, included and accepted without the stigma associated with dementia.
  • A place that provides opportunities for social participation for people living with dementia and their carers to reduce social isolation.
  • A safe physical and social environment for people living with dementia

What is a Dementia-Friendly Community?

This is an initiative of Dementia Australia where local communities are empowered to make a difference.

A Dementia-Friendly Community is “a place where people living with dementia are supported to live a high quality of life with meaning, purpose and value.” (Dementia Australia, 2019).


Tip of the Month

Our monthly tips are provided by members of the Dementia Alliance Advisory Group or those with lived experiences of dementia.

You do not need to be alone when caring for someone with dementia

The importance of being with others who experience the same issues, people with whom you can relate, share your challenges, and exchange tips, cannot be understated.

There are several activities and groups to help make the path an easier one, where you can not only get help but also assist others. Pick a day and choose one of the meetings available. There are several options on the Northern Beaches, please see below...
