How do we support you?

The My Dementia Companion CARER tool makes caring and life easier for people impacted by dementia.

It intuitively offers you personalised and practical support information throughout this "maze" and evolving journey.

It is FREE and easy to use. You can access it on your phone or computer.

For professionals or providers, it also brings many benefits for you and your clients.
 

After someone close to you is diagnosed with dementia, you may ask yourself:​

  • There's too much information everywhere and I'm overwhelmed. What do I do? Where do I start?

  • What is dementia? How is it different to Alzheimer's disease?

  • How do you treat it? 

  • Where do we go for help?

  • What subsidies are we entitled to? 

  • What do I do to help my loved one with daily challenges, such as eating difficulties?

  • What are other carers doing?

The My Dementia Companion tool can help you.
