When you’re living with dementia or caring for someone with dementia, there can be a lot of questions and unknowns.

Brisbane North PHN has created an online dementia service navigation platform and hardcopy directory, to improve dementia service navigation across the North Brisbane and Moreton Bay region.

These resources have been designed collaboratively with people living with dementia, their carers and families, as well as health professionals and service providers—to best meet each of their needs.

The Your Care Navigator website is the ultimate guide for finding support, services and information relating to dementia in the North Brisbane and Moreton Bay area.

For dementia support, it’s the place to look when you don’t know where to look.  

Your Care Navigator is now live and can be accessed at www.yourcarenavigator.org.au.   

The easy-to-use online tool will point you in the right direction for:  

  • emergency respite 
  • help at home 
  • mental health and wellbeing 
  • planning for the future 
  • education and resources.  

The PHN collaborated with the peak national body Dementia Australia and creative agency New Word Order to create this tool.  

This website will be celebrated in the Moreton Bay Dementia Alliance Walk with Me event during Dementia Action Week in September. The event is Thursday 23 September at 9.30 am at the North Lakes Hotel Conference and Function Centre. Find more information or register for this event.     

Brisbane North PHN plans to expand on this digital resource in the future to include service navigation for the needs of all older people for healthy living and wellbeing in the North Brisbane and Moreton Bay region.
