Counselling by Dementia Australia
If you have dementia, or you’re caring for someone living with dementia, it’s normal to experience a range of good and bad feelings. You’re not alone. Dementia Australia offers free, confidential, professional counselling for individuals, families, couples and professional carers at all stages of a dementia journey.
Counselling is important as it can help you understand what you, or someone you care about, is going through. It can be good to talk with a professional about your:
– emotional reactions
– family and culture
– living arrangements
– dementia symptoms
– changed behaviours.
Everyone will experience dementia differently. Counselling support can help individuals, couples and families to:
– gain a better understanding of the impact of dementia
– develop strategies to respond to feelings of stress or mixed emotions
– plan for the future, by setting goals and seeking referrals for practice support.
We can speak with you face-to-face, on the phone or via video conferencing.

Younger Onset Dementia Support
Dementia can happen to anyone – including people under the age of 65. Often, people do not expect younger people to have dementia, so it can come with unique social, emotional and financial challenges. You don’t have to navigate these challenges alone. Dementia Australia has an online hub of useful information, resources, support to help you live well with dementia.
