Struggling to cope with dementia and Alzheimer's? Hotline support is available in Australia

If you’re experiencing a loss of your ability to remember things or think clearly, you’re not alone. In fact, one person develops dementia every three seconds. There are 10 hotlines in Australia that provide support with dementia and Alzheimer's. Contact them if you are noticing the following symptoms:

  • You become paranoid and feel like everyone is working against you
  • Diminishing interest in things you used to enjoy
  • Losing balance and falling easily
  • Taking longer to complete tasks you perform regularly
  • Finding yourself repeating questions when you are asked something so that you can focus better
  • Difficulties concentrating on reading or writing
  • Feeling depressed and pessimistic for no obvious reason
  • Being confused and uncertain about what is happening

Everyone responds to receiving the diagnosis of dementia and Alzheimer’s differently. It’s normal if you feel anger, grief, confusion, or even relief knowing what’s wrong with you. So many people around the world are going through the same thing at this very moment.

You might feel the need to maintain your self-sufficiency as long as possible. Reaching out to volunteers from a helpline that supports with dementia and Alzheimer’s can help you cope with the diagnosis in a healthy and productive way.
