Dementia is currently the single greatest cause of disability in older Australians. Of course, dementia is not exclusive to any age bracket and according to the AIHW, there are currently more than 353,800 people living with dementia in Australia. With this figure expected to reach almost 400,000 by 2020, and around 900,000 by 2050 – the need to invest more funding into both research and support is greater than ever.
The 8th Annual National Dementia Conference brought together senior level experts to discuss the future challenges and opportunities which relate to the implementation of an ongoing national framework for dementia services.
