New dementia support pilot launched

A new dementia carer support pilot has been launched. My Dementia Companion is an online tool that guides family, friends and carers through one of life's most challenging and confusing journeys.

My Dementia Companion offers personalised and practical support for a person’s dementia journey. It is easy to use and accessible at any time online.

The program supports people to:

  • find government services
  • access local support and services
  • better understand dementia and how to develop care and coping strategies at home.

My Dementia Companion is one of four winning technology ideas from Dementia Australia’s Decoding Dementia 2019 Innovation Program.

Initially, this pilot will run for six weeks. For more information, or for families wishing to take part in the pilot, visit the My Dementia Companion website.
