Alzheimer’s WA is committed to caring, supporting and advocating for people living with dementia.
The Sydney North Health Network supports the Caring for Cognitive Impairment campaign and is committed to increasing efficiency of medical services and coordination of patients with dementia and delirium in primary health settings to ensure they receive the right care, in the right place at the right time.
The Royal Australasian College of Physicians supports the Caring for Cognitive Impairment Campaign. We are committed to raising awareness of the impacts of cognitive impairment, and working proactively to promote best possible care.
Our commitment at Hunter New England Central Coast Primary Health Network is to healthy people and healthy communities, and the Caring for Cognitive Impairment campaign is a practical demonstration of our support towards improving the health outcomes of people experiencing cognitive impairment.
The Caring for Cognitive Impairment Campaign recognises the need for a person-centred approach to care, which looks at the person as a whole and not just the symptom they are presenting with in hospital. People with dementia are at a high risk of delirium. 30%-40% of delirium cases can be prevented. Dementia Australia supports the Caring for Cognitive Impairment Campaign because we can and must improve care outcomes for people living with dementia who go into hospital.
