September is Dementia Awareness Month. 


Dementia Awareness Month runs from 1 September to 30 September every year. This year, the theme is: ‘You are not alone’. For both people with dementia and their carers it can be an isolating and lonely experience.  There are resources for carers as well as people with dementia available.
 
According to Alzheimers Australia, one in eight Australians with dementia do not speak English at home. The barriers faced by people of culturally and linguistically diverse backgrounds with dementia make multilingual resources vital.

To celebrate Dementia Awareness Month, here are some multilingual resources regarding dementia.

All resources are hosted on the Health Translations Directory -  a portal which provides access to more than 10,000 translated health resources in over 90 languages.

About Dementia Awareness Month
 

Dementia Awareness Month aims to give Australians a better understanding of what it is like for a person to live with dementia. It also highlights the importance of accessing services and information early to empower and enable everybody impacted by dementia, including carers.
