Description

About Information Day

Caring for someone with dementia can be challenging, both physically and emotionally. Dementia can influence a person’s behaviour including memory loss, wandering, depression, aggression, false ideas, and loss of inhibition. Although these can be challenging, there are many strategies that may help you in the caring role.

Alzheimer’s Australia SA’s Information Day is an opportunity for family carers to learn more about dementia, dementia research, the signs and behaviours of dementia, and strategies around loss, grief and resilience. The day provides an opportunity to network and socialise with other carers. Morning tea, lunch, and afternoon tea will be provided.
