Dementia is not one disease, it's a collection of symptoms unique to the individual. Born from an avalanche of documents, Dementia Australia needed an easy-to-use, easy-to-maintain tool to brief carers and family members.
After some collaborative workshops, we echoed the way counsellors were educating: what does the brain do, how does dementia affect the brain and what are some helpful strategies to navigate key situations.
My great grandma and I lived together and were very close. She had dementia in her later years. I feel any family, no matter how much you feel you "know" about dementia, can never be completely prepared for it. Information and strategies are key.
