Who We Are:

 

The Onkaparinga Dementia-Friendly Alliance of South Australia (ODFASA) is a group of people who are either living with dementia, a carer, or have had some experience of dementia, who want to establish a dementia-friendly Onkaparinga region,

What We Aim To Do:

We want to contribute to making Onkaparinga region a dementia-friendly community through the development of the ODFASA. We bring together people living with dementia, business and community stakeholders and other members of the community.  ODFASA coordinates and facilitates activities which will contribute to creating an Onkaparinga region that is dementia-friendly and respectful of people with dementia and their carers.

Our Goals Are:

  • Build an understanding of dementia.

  • Encourage the Onkaparinga region to become dementia-friendly and respectful of people living with dementia and their carers.

  • Support community activities for people living with dementia.

  • Acknowledge the potential of people living with dementia to confidently engage in community life to feel a sense of belonging.

  • Offer community-based solutions to enable people to live independently as far as possible.

  • Promote easy to navigate, local business and service providers.

Dementia Friends Awareness.

In 2021 there is an estimated 3,578 people living with dementia in the Onkaparinga region.  This is estimated to increase to 7,017 people by 2058.

A recent survey by Dementia Australia found people living with dementia and their carers, reported they experienced embarrassing situations and often felt strongly disconnected.

ODFASA wants to transform the way we think, act and talk about dementia.

By becoming a Dementia Friend through our Hosting Sessions, you can help others with dementia feel accepted, included and involved.

This can also be done on the Dementia Australia web site..
