Take the survey by clicking the following link: www.surveymonkey.com/r/consumers2016
Your views are important and Alzheimer’s Australia would like to invite as many people living with dementia and their carers to complete their National Consumer Survey.
With an election ahead of us this year, it is an important time to make sure that leaders, policy makers and the community are thinking about the issues affecting people with dementia, carers, and families. Your responses will help to inform Alzheimer’s Australia’s ongoing work to influence national policy and raise awareness about change that needs to happen.
The survey will be available until 5 pm AEDT Monday 7 March and is open to people with dementia and their care partners.
The Alzheimer’s Australia website says: “Dementia is not a normal part of ageing: it is a chronic, progressive and terminal disease. There are estimated to be 353,800 Australians living with dementia, including 25,000 with Younger Onset Dementia (below the age of 65). Read a summary of Australia dementia statistics.
Dementia is a National Health Priority Area in Australia.
Alzheimer’s Australia recognises the vital roles that general practice and primary care play in the diagnosis and treatment of dementia: from identification and diagnosis, right through to the ongoing management and care of people living with dementia.”
