Help Keep the World open for people living with dementia

Harvey Deegan

Dementia Australia has launched a new campaign urging all Australians to take a pledge to help keep the world open for people living with dementia, not just during the COVID-19 pandemic, but every day.

COVID-19 has changed everyone’s lives. Familiar routines stopped, people are feeling disconnected and anxious, but for most, now the restrictions are easing they will be able to reconnect with family and friends and get back to normal routines.

For people living with dementia, living in isolation can be a reality all day, every day even under usual circumstances.

Dementia Australia CEO Maree McCabe joined The Weekend Catch-Up where she told Mark Gibson many people living with dementia will continue it be socially isolated after the crisis ends.

“The campaign Keep the World open is about raising awareness encouraging people to be champions for people living with dementia,” said Ms McCabe

“And to take a pledge that will do something that will make a difference their lives.”

 

Dementia Australia invites all Australians to find out more and dementia, discrimination, see some practical tips, and to take the pledge on our website www.keeptheworldopen.com.au
