Our Story

Dementia Directions

Tailored Dementia Care

Dementia Directions was founded to provide tailored support for people experiencing symptoms of dementia and memory loss caused by neurological conditions such as Alzheimer’s disease, vascular dementia, Lewy Body disease and frontotemporal dementia. We exist to support individuals and their families through this challenging journey to improve the quality of life for all affected.

Founder, Helen Hild has had a career focused on improving the well-being of older people and people living with dementia with extensive experience in community aged care organisations and work with Dementia Australia. Her passion to support people affected by dementia stemmed from her own family experiences and the needs faced by her clients.

Advisory, Support & Advocacy

In her work, Helen would regularly see people who were not receiving the support they needed when dealing with memory loss and dementia. She was drawn to areas that were not well supported and used her abilities to help. The areas were: 

  • Supporting carers to enable greater care of themselves and better support for their loved ones living with dementia.
  • Supporting people with diagnosed and undiagnosed symptoms of dementia who did not have carer support or family to help them to advocate for their needs.
  • Helping people living with dementia who were disadvantaged due to their ethnicity and cultural background.

In 2022, Helen was working as a consultant for Australia’s leading peak body for dementia support services, in the field of dementia education for workers within the aged care sector. It was at this time that her own personal role as a carer came to an end when her mother passed, but it was also at this time that a wider role of providing support to others could begin.
