Northern Beaches Dementia Alliance

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.

Schedule Wisely

Establish a daily routine. Some tasks, such as bathing or medical appointments, are easier when the person is most alert and refreshed. Allow some flexibility for spontaneous activities or particularly difficult days.
