Dementia Awareness Week is the national flagship week for Alzheimer's Australia's community awareness activities each year.
This year Dementia Awareness Week (DAW) will take place from 16 to 22 September, with World Alzheimer's Day occurring on 21 Sep 2013.
The theme this year is Brain Health: Making the Connections. This theme gives organisations and individuals an opportunity to get involved in promoting brain-healthy lifestyles, promoting early detection and raising awareness of dementia.
