Dementia and Memory Community Centre - TAS

The Commonwealth-funded Dementia and Memory Community Centres offer a range of services to the general public, including those with memory loss, their carers, family and friends.

Some of the services we offer include:

Information resources

Tasmania's Dementia & Memory Community Centre offers a computer to allow access to the internet so you can find information on memory and dementia online. A range of hard-copy information resources is also available. 

Library

The Centre incorporates a library of books and videos, which you can browse. Membership to Alzheimer’s Australia Tasmania gives you borrowing rights. 

Risk reduction workshops

Find out about how you can reduce your risk of developing dementia by learning about the Your Brain Matters program. 

Programs

A number of programs are run on site, including our art therapy program and community information sessions. A number of other one-off programs and sessions are run at the Centre throughout the year, and are advertised by mailout to clients, service providers, and members of the association.

Outreach

A mobile resource van operates throughout the state, visiting rural and remote areas to promote the Your Brain Matters program and provide information to those with memory loss, their carers, families and friends. A number of support groups are also run in rural areas, for people with dementia and their carers.

Talk to a counsellor

A qualified counsellor, psychologist or social worker is always available to talk confidentially, face-to-face, with you about your concerns, be they for your own memory or that of a family member or friend.
