Our vision is for a society committed to the prevention of dementia, while valuing and supporting people living with dementia.
What is dementia? Who gets dementia? What are the early signs? Answers to these questions and more.
Alzheimer’s Australia’s report, The use of restraint and psychotropic medications in people with dementia, provides evidence-based information on the current practice of physical restraints and the use of psychotropic medications. The paper looks at the prevalence of their use, the potential negative consequences and the legal implications. It particularly highlights the importance of considering psychosocial approaches first, including person-centred care and recreational therapies.
