Dementia vs Alzheimers
by Maree McCabe AM, CEO of Dementia Australia
Many people have heard of dementia but might not understand what it is or what the difference is between Alzheimer’s disease and dementia. Dementia is a progressive, fatal disease of the brain.
It’s time to focus on your health and wellbeing
Carers Queensland Explains
It can be simple, and it can also be complex. It can happen gradually or even overnight. You might be looking after a loved one or a friend, without realising you are a carer. Our Carer Program is designed to make your life better.
Discover how to save on aged care
by Rachel Lane, Aged Care Gurus
When it comes to residential aged care (what used to be called “nursing homes”) many people believe that if they don’t have any money, they won’t get in. Which is simply not true.
I'm not a carer - or am I?
In Australia today, there are around 2.7 million people looking after a family member with a disability, medical condition, mental illness, or frailty due to age. Most do not see themselves as carers. Instead, they think of themselves as children, parents, partners, relatives or friends who are caring for someone close to them.
How to deal with anxiety?
Feelings of anxiety can be normal and healthy, or they can indicate an anxiety problem. It’s normal, for example, to feel afraid when a large dog snaps at you or to worry when a family member is several hours late and has not called. These feelings can help you to protect yourself and others you care about.
