- Supporting people with dementia in Central Australia – Heather Jensen
Dementia is not a specific disease; it is the term used to describe a collection of symptoms that are caused by disorders affecting the brain. Dementia is characterised by widespread impairment of mental function, decline in activities of daily living, and impaired social function. This means thinking, memory, communication, emotions, and other functions of the brain get worse over time, and cannot be cured. Most people with dementia will eventually require assistance to perform even simple tasks.
Allied Health Academic at the Centre for Remote Health, Heather Jensen, shares her experiences working with Aboriginal people in bush communities.
