The service supports family carers, people with dementia, health professionals and community care workers in NSW by providing access to quality dementia related consumer health information and resources.

NSW - Support Groups

Support Groups give you an opportunity to meet with others in a similar situation to share experiences, learn new ideas for skills for living with dementia and engaging in mutual problem solving.

NSW - Younger Onset Dementia

A diagnosis of younger onset dementia can be very isolating. You may have received a diagnosis, be someone who is caring for a family member, or you may have a mum or dad with younger onset dementia. You are not alone.

Safely Home can help people living with dementia walk safely by providing rapid and accurate identification if they get lost. Safely Home is a joint partnership between Alzheimer's Australia NSW and the Missing Persons Unit of the NSW Police Force.

NSW - Every bloke needs a shed

This program aims to encourage and support men living in the community with early stage dementia to access, participate and enjoy the mateship, camaraderie and activities available in their local Men’s Shed.
