Ezidi Refugee Video Resources

The arrival of the Ezidi humanitarian refugees has highlighted many challenges for the local community, and one of the main barriers faced by both communities is language and communication. To help address some of the challenges faced by the Ezidi community, HealthWISE, funded by the Hunter New England Primary Healthcare Network, have developed a series of short videos that explain 11 different topics of the Australian healthcare system, spoken in the Ezidi language, Kurdish/Kurmanji. Please see below our introductory video

Dementia Action Week 2021

This month HealthWISE joins Dementia Australia spreading the word in raising awareness about dementia. Dementia affects a lot of Australians. In fact, nearly half a million Australians are living with dementia, with almost 1.6 million people involved in their care.

Wherever you are across our region, you can get involved in Dementia Action Week 2021
(20 – 26 September). This year, the theme is: “A little support makes a big difference”

HealthWISE is actively involved in Dementia Care in the New England area providing a Memory Assessment Program referral pathway for GPs, advice and support for carers of people living with dementia, and a Dementia Carers Support Group. 

HealthWISE has also produced a series of videos – Caring about Dementia, for carers of people living with dementia with some tips and hints that may help. These videos can be watched at a time that suits during the journey in caring for someone with dementia.
