Alzheimer's Australia Vic: A society committed to the prevention of dementia while valuing and supporting people living with dementia

Alzheimer’s Australia Vic assists people with dementia as well as carers and families to manage the daily challenges that dementia brings. We work with care staff and students to deliver best practice in dementia care. We also teach the community about dementia and the benefits of a healthy lifestyle in helping to reduce dementia risk. We provide leadership in dementia policy, risk reduction and services.

Good governance is an integral part of our organisation's ability to work effectively and openly, founded on strong relationships between senior board members, our CEO, staff, stakeholders, and the community.
