Research is the key to identifying those most at riskof developing dementia and to finding better treatments fordementia. It has been estimated that if the onset of dementiacould be delayed by five years, the number of people withdementia in Australia could be halved.In 2011-2012 the Australian Government, through the NationalHealth and Medical Research Council (NHMRC), providedapproximately $159.2 million for cancer research, $92.4 millionfor cardiovascular disease research, $71.2 million for research ondiabetes and $53.6 million for mental health research. Despite itbeing the third leading cause of death in Australia, dementiaresearch received just $24 million.Alzheimer’s Australia will be pursuing the issue of investmentin dementia research through the Strategic Review of Healthand Medical Research chaired by Simon McKeon. The Reviewis to report by the end of 2012 and recommend a 10-yearstrategic plan for health and medical research for Australia.Alzheimer’s Australia has made a submission to the Review andwould like to see an additional $40 million per annum injectedinto dementia research through the NHMRC to close the fundinggap between dementia and other chronic conditions.Alzheimer’s Australia SA has recently launched our firstAlzheimer’s Consumer Alliance SA group. This group consistingof people with dementia, carers, associated peak bodies andgovernment representatives will allow us to greater understandthe needs and concerns of the community and strengthen ourability to engage with Government. We are honoured to haveDr Faizal Ibrahim as the inaugural Chair of this exciting newinitiative.The Alliance will strengthen the voice of people with dementiatheir carers and families in SA.Our Consumer Forums will begin rolling out over the next12 months in both metropolitan and regional SA. If you areinterested in attending a forum please check our website fordetails or phone Phil Saunders on 8372 2100.If you would like to add your voice to help Fight Dementia,you can become a member for only $20, like us on Facebookor join the Fight Dementia campaign, just log ontowww.campaign.fightdementia.org.au.There has never been a better time than now to have yourvoice heard!Kathryn CunninghamCEO Alzheimer’s Australia SAUnder the umbrella of the new branding,our Association and our related Associations throughout Australiahave been extremely active in spreading our message.It was gratifying to see a positive recognition of the need forincreased funding recognised in the recent Federal budget.As Kathryn Cunningham, our CEO, has pointed out in hermessage it is never enough. There is however clear evidencethat we have the ear of the decision makers and please beassured we will not slow down in our efforts to advocate the needin the area of dementia.With this increased focus comes a need to ensure that we asan organisation are best placed to meet the challenges anddeliver the services as we go forward.Whilst your Board continues to maintain its governanceresponsibilities in relation to ongoing operations, it is also activestrategically.Along with a review of AASA’s strategic plan, Strategy 2014,we are spending time looking at how best to achieve our missionin five and ten year’s time.We truly believe the future belongs to those who plan for it.On a more immediate front, I hope you can find time toparticipate in the upcoming Consumer Forums. It is my intentionto attend a number of these and I look forward to catching upwith some of you.Tony NewmanChairman Alzheimer’s Australia SAWINTER NEWSLETTER JULY 2012 3


C0VER STORYAGED CAREREFORMSALZHEIMER’S AUSTRALIA WELCOMES THE FEDERALGOVERNMENT’S AGED CARE REFORMS AND THEIRPLAN TO TACKLE DEMENTIA.ta Buttrose, President of Alzheimer’s Australia, saidthe Government’s package showed that the PrimeMinister and the Minister for Mental Health andAgeing, Mark Butler, have not only listened topeople with dementia but have respondedcomprehensively to their priorities.“Thousands have spoken out about the failingsof the health and care system in relation todementia; the Government’s decisions are both areward and a relief to those 280,000 Australianswith dementia and their 1.2 million carers,” MsButtrose said.“The centrepiece of the reforms from a consumerpoint of view is the strengthening of the community caresystem to make it possible for people with dementia tostay at home longer.This is central to any strategy for consumer choice, asis the emphasis in the reforms to empower consumers tohave more say over the services they need, when theyneed them and who delivers them.”The Government’s proposals for tackling dementiaaddress the key priorities in the Fight DementiaCampaign particularly; timely diagnosis; improving thequality of dementia care; improving acute care services;support for people with younger onset dementia; andexpanded support through the National DementiaSupport Program to improve access to bettercoordinated services.“There remains a concern about increasing the levelof investment in dementia research but this is an issuethat Alzheimer’s Australia will be pursuing vigorouslythrough the Minister’s review of Scientific and MedicalFunding in Australia,” Ms Buttrose said.“It’s great to see a genuine focus on dementia inthe aged care reforms. Dementia is getting the attentionit deserves.”Ms Buttrose thanked Minister Butler for taking thedementia issue to Cabinet and getting a good resultin a difficult budget.The CEO of Alzheimer’s Australia SA, KathrynCunningham, said she wanted to thank all thosemembers who showed their support and helped inthe campaign.“We could not have done this without you,”Ms Cunningham said.“Thank you to everyone who signed up asa Dementia Champion, who shared your stories,who wrote to your local MP or Senator, who marchedon Parliament House in Canberra in October last yearand who signed our Valentine’s Day cards.This has been a giant team effort and having so manypeople uniting to demand better services and care forpeople with dementia made all the difference. Thank youagain to you all."Although, not all our priorities have been addressed.Research in dementia is important if we are to reducethe future numbers of people with dementia. Alzheimer’sAustralia is concerned about the very low level ofinvestment in dementia research. This is an issue we willbe pursuing vigorously through the Minister’s review ofScientific and Medical Funding in Australia.The reforms will be reviewed at the end of five yearsand the government has rightly taken the view that thefull impact of the reforms will take ten years to work theirway through. This is because the reforms are not just aquestion of funding but changing the way services aredelivered. There will continue to be frustrations for manythousands of people with dementia and their carers asthe reforms work their way through.CRUNCH THENUMBERS$1.9BILLIONTO DELIVER BETTER ACCESSTO AGED CARE SERVICES$1.2BILLIONTO TACKLE CRITICALSHORTAGES IN THE AGEDCARE WORKFORCE$80.2MILLIONTO IMPROVE AGED CARELINKAGES WITH THEHEALTH SYSTEM$54.8MILLIONTO SUPPORT CARERS$268.4MILLIONTO TACKLE THE NATION’SDEMENTIA EPIDEMIC$192MILLIONTO SUPPORT THE DIVERSECARE OF AUSTRALIA’SAGEING POPULATION4 WINTER NEWSLETTER JULY 2012 WINTER NEWSLETTER JULY 2012 5


C0VER STORYRECENT NEWSTHE REFORMS WILL BE REVIEWED AT THEEND OF FIVE YEARS AND THE GOVERNMENTHAS RIGHTLY TAKEN THE VIEW THAT THEFULL IMPACT OF THE REFORMS WILLTAKE TEN YEARS TO WORK THEIR WAYTHROUGH.SUNDAY MAILCITY-BAY FUN RUN2012UPCOMINGEVENTSWHAT THEREFORMS MEAN:• First, the reforms hold out the promise of strengthening thecommunity care system to make it possible for people withdementia to stay at home longer. There will be morecommunity care packages and more funding for respitecare. This is central to any strategy for consumer choiceand avoiding premature entry to residential care. However,I have doubts on whether the growth in community serviceswill be fast enough.• Second, the reforms to empower consumers throughadopting consumer directed care in all care packageswill enable consumers to have more say over the servicesthey need, when they need them and who delivers them.This greater flexibility should be of help to diversecommunities, although there are special measures inthe reforms to assist in tailoring services to their needs.Registrations are open to the 2012 SundayMail City-Bay Fun Run!

Having heard that AASA were running such aprogram we sent a request to Pamela in the Early InterventionTeam to help us develop our version of the program. Not onlywas permission given to share resources but actually an invite tovisit and receive facilitator training. We had the opportunity inMarch to spend a week at AASA.“The ‘Living with Memory Loss’ training was excellent and theopportunities we had to sit-in on some groups was a bonus. Thisenabled us to see how both clients and carers confidence hadincreased over the course of the program; being strengthened bytheir increased knowledge and the support they were receiving.Meeting with most of the other teams was also very inspiring.It was so encouraging to see what excellent work can be donewith and for people with dementia, and their carers.I was especially impressed with the Dementia BehaviourManagement Advisory Services team, and their ability to respondto individual clients and develop programs to support them andtheir carers.We came away with our minds bursting with information andour suitcases full of resources and now the challenge is for usto focus on the development of our ‘Living with Memory Loss’program, to enable us to provide something worthwhile forour clients.Thank you to everyone who welcomed us so warmly and tooktime to talk about your valuable work.
