In 2018 NoosaCare’s DementiaLiving team put a call out to the Noosa community to create a “Dementia Friendly Community Advisory Board’ to prepare our community to meet the needs of people with dementia and be a part of the dementia friendly movement across Australia.
The board’s first project is a Dementia Friendly Memory Support Pack which provides vital information for people newly diagnosed with dementia and for their families. A diagnosis of dementia can be overwhelming. Obtaining accurate information and support will help you understand what to expect and make plans for the future. We hope the information and resources provided in the Memory Support Pack, along with the Dementia Priority Checklist will give you and your family direction during the early stages after diagnosis.
