Alzheimer’s WA advocates, educates, supports and engages the 41,630 Western Australians living with all types of dementia.
Dementia is the leading cause of death of women in Australia and the second leading cause of death of all Australians. Without a medical breakthrough, the number of Western Australians living with dementia is projected to increase rapidly to almost 150,000 in the next four decades. There is no cure.
Established in 1982, Alzheimer’s WA provides direct care, support, education and information to assist people living with dementia as well as their families and carers.
As the dementia experts, Alzheimer’s WA works with those living with dementia and the organisations that care and support them, to have the greatest beneficial impact on their dementia journey.
