This booklet is specifically designed for and by Indigenous people to confront the issues of dementia with knowledge and dignity.
It is important that you do not rely on this booklet as medical advice (although it has been developed in close consultation with medical advisors). Like any illness or sickness, dementia needs to be treated under the close guidance of a health professional.
Respecting and caring for the Elders and older people in our community has always been an important part of our culture. If you are reading this booklet it probably means the issue of dementia is touching your life, or the life of a person in your immediate or extended family. That person is probably an older person or Elder.
