Support sessions for free
DO YOU know someone living with dementia? Alzheimer’s Australia (Queensland) is holding free education sessions for people living with dementia and their loved ones in your region.
There are an estimated 77,633 people with dementia in Queensland, which is expected to grow to 233,298 people by 2056.
Chances are, someone you know is living with dementia.
Come along to these free education sessions and discover more about dementia and the support that is available.
The education sessions will cover a series of topics, including “Dementia – know the facts”, “Family Carer Course”, “Living with Memory Loss”, “Considering Residential Care” and “Living with Change” for family or friends wanting to find out more information about caring for someone with dementia.
Senior Dementia Advisor from Alzheimer’s Australia (Queensland) Barbara Cunningham said the aim of these education sessions is to support the community.
“Attending these workshops could help you get a better understanding of dementia and develop effective strategies either for yourself or to support a loved one,” Barbara said.
Session will run from August 24 to September 22.
