Event description

Description

The Dementia Centre and Alzheimer's Australia warmly invite you to join us to launch Dementia and Sensory Challenges - Dementia can be more than memory inspired by and created with the words of people with dementia.

Agnes Houston, who was diagnosed with Alzheimer's disease over nine years ago expected issues to occur with her memory but not the challenges to her senses that she experienced. When she began speaking to others with dementia, she soon realized that she was not alone with many others experiencing changes to the senses that no one had prepared them for or discussed how to live a positive life with the changes.

This exciting new resource for people living with dementia, their families and carers raises the awareness of sensory changes which are not widely documented or commonly known. There are also several helpful tips and suggestions that can make a big difference to those who need our understanding and for us who desire to understand more as sensory challenges occur.
