Description

Dementia is NOT a normal part of ageing

Did you know dementia is the leading cause of death for women and the second most common cause of death among all Australians*?

Too many of us consider being forgetful as part of ageing! Dementia is NOT a normal part of ageing and we should not be afraid to ask those tricky questions and talk about it.

Let’s create a world where we can talk and support those with dementia!

Join us during the 2020 Seniors Festival for a FREE morning tea, discussion and information session and let’s get talking!
