The general public are also welcome to get involved with any of our upcoming events.
Dementia Awareness Month
Dementia Awareness Month runs from 1 September to 30 September every year.
The purpose of Dementia Awareness Month is to encourage Australians to become dementia-aware, have a better understanding of what it is like for a person to live with dementia, and ultimately be encouraged to create communities where people with dementia are supported to live a high quality of life with meaning, purpose and value.
The theme for 2017 is You are not alone and the main activities will be a series of seminars with international and local dementia experts and key note speakers.
The full schedule for Dementia Awareness Month 2017 will be available on this page in August 2017.
