Friday 21 September is World Alzheimers Day – which raises awareness as well as challenging the stigma that surrounds dementia.
And here in WA, September is Dementia Awareness Month with the theme – Together we can… help ensure no one faces dementia alone.
Rise supports people with dementia
At Rise we’re all about people, not about the barriers they may have.
Which means to provide the right kind of support for those living with dementia, we discover their passions and take the time to learn about their life experiences. Then we can make real connections with the people we support.
Spark of Life club
Spark of Life is a gentle and celebratory philosophy that offers a practical approach to dementia care.
It’s all about restoring happiness. Lifting the spirit and encouraging a zest for life for people living with dementia.
Our Spark of Life club is run twice a week by specially trained support workers.
We always aim to provide someone living with dementia with the best experiences possible in any one day.
And we haven’t forgotten the care-givers! We know that caring for someone with dementia is a full-time role.
So our beautiful Milperra Cottage located in the Perth Hills can offer overnight stays to people with dementia. It also provides care-givers with a well earned break.
Rise provides numerous aged care services which includes social centres, personal care, dementia support and home support. For more information click here.
