New dementia resources: Italian and Spanish

Posted on June 4, 2024

Our information sheet about support for people diagnosed with dementia has now been translated into two additional languages: Italian and Spanish.

It’s estimated that nearly half a million Australians are living with dementia, with around 29,000 diagnosed with early onset dementia (including people in their 30s, 40s and 50s), while 1.6 million Australians are involved in the care of someone living with dementia.

Our information sheet outlines where patients, family and carers can find services and support following a dementia diagnosis. It’s available in English, Greek, Simplified Chinese, Nepali, and now Italian and Spanish.

Primary Health Tasmania also worked with TasCOSS to develop the Dementia Directory as part of the FindHelpTAS website. The directory links to support services and resources for people with mild cognitive impairment or dementia, their family, friends, and carers.

These resources have been developed with Australian Government funding. They are available at tasp.hn/dementiaresources

If you’re worried about a dementia diagnosis, talk to your GP.
