“Looking out for Dementia”: Indigenous Educational Resources
A New educational resource designed to inform Indigenous people in the NT about dementia, now available for purchase. The suite of resources which includes a DVD in English and three Indigenous languages, flipchart and poster describes what dementia is, how to help someone with dementia, and simple strategies to minimise the risk of developing dementia.

The resources can be purchased as a set for $80.00 from Alzheimer’s Australia NT plus postage and handling.

To order the resources please complete the order form available from Alzheimer's Australia NT website or for further information please contact Catherine Zlatnik at Alzheimer’s Australia NT on (08) 89485228.

Further information:
The Indigenous Dementia Resources project was proposed after our staff identified a lack of appropriate dementia resources to inform Indigenous people living in remote communities of the NT. Funding from the Northern Territory and Australian Governments enabled Alzheimer’s Australia NT in partnership with the NT Dementia Behaviour Management Service to develop a suite of themed resources – a DVD in four languages (Djambarruyngu, Warlpiri and Kriol), flipchart and poster – to describe what dementia is, how to help someone with dementia, and simple strategies to minimise the risk of developing dementia. This educational tool was launched in Darwin and Alice Springs during Dementia Awareness Week 2009 and is now available for purchase through Alzheimer's Australia NT.
