Dementia in Australia 2021 report released

Published

To coincide with Dementia Action Week (20–26 September), a new report into dementia has been released.

The Dementia in Australia 2021 report provides a comprehensive picture of dementia and its impacts on Australia’s health and aged care systems.

Dementia is now the third-leading cause of disease burden in Australia. Up to 472,000 Australians are living with dementia, and more than half of people in residential aged care have dementia. Between 134,900 and 337,200 Australians are providing consistent unpaid care for a person with dementia.
