Navigating the System: Finding Supports After a Dementia Diagnosis

People recently diagnosed with dementia and carers find themselves navigating a maze of services, practitioners, and little information about what support is available. In the absence of a clear dementia care pathway, this panel discussion will describe the challenges and practical solutions in negotiating the Australian health and aged care systems to provide treatments and supports post diagnosis. This webinar will guide diagnosticians and primary care practitioners to help their patients access services.

This panel discussion will be chaired by UNSW CHeBA Co-Director Prof Henry Brodaty, with experiences and stories from:
• Bill Yeates, a passionate consumer voice for people living with dementia;
• Dr Stephanie Daly, a leading GP in dementia;
• Dr Andrea Lees, a prominent Geriatrician at the Royal Hobart Hospital;
• Sue Tolhurst, an innovative social worker and dementia advisor in Western Sydney.

Forward with Dementia is brought to you by an international team from Australia, Canada, Netherlands, Poland and the UK. It is funded by the European Union Joint Programme – Neurogenerative Disease Research and the NHMRC
