Rates of Dementia Expected to Reach 1M by 2058

In Australia, the number of persons with dementia is expected to reach 1 million by 2058, but the good news is that research discoveries are accelerating with new treatments for Alzheimer’s disease and accurate diagnostic blood tests, now emerging.


From 29 - 31 May 2023, the world’s top dementia researchers, health professionals and policymakers, along with people living with dementia and their families and carers, will gather at the Marriott Gold Coast Resort & Spa, Queensland for the annual Australian Dementia Research Forum (ADRF 2023).

Understanding Dementia: Alzheimer’s Disease And Beyond

Although many Australians may be familiar with Alzheimer's disease, (the most common cause of dementia in Australia, accounting for about 60-80% of cases), there are other types of dementia as well. In recent years, frontotemporal dementia (FTD) has come to global attention, first with the Monty Python star, Terry Jones, dying from this disease in 2020, and most recently with the sombre announcement that the seemingly invincible action superstar Bruce Willis has been diagnosed with FTD.


FTD is a progressive and irreversible neurological disorder that affects the frontal and temporal lobes of the brain, and can cause changes in personality, behaviour, language and movement skills and also impacts decision-making and other executive functions.
