Sup­port needed for de­men­tia group

Sunshine Coast Daily - Caloundra Weekly - - NEWS -

THE first of its kind on the Sun­shine Coast, the Ad­ven­ture with De­men­tia group has proven to be a much-needed sup­port for many Coast res­i­dents liv­ing with Younger On­set De­men­tia.

Launched last year, the joint ven­ture through Alzheimer’s Aus­tralia (Qld) and Bromilow Home Sup­port Ser­vices pro­vides a sup­port­ive frame­work, with co-or­di­nated ac­tiv­i­ties to help im­prove the qual­ity of life for those di­ag­nosed with Younger On­set De­men­tia.

Ini­tially funded by Bud­erim Foun­da­tion, the group fa­cil­i­ta­tors are now ac­tively seek­ing fi­nan­cial sup­port to en­sure this valu­able com­mu­nity group re­mains ac­tive, sup­ported and op­er­a­tional through­out 2018 and beyond.

Ad­ven­ture with De­men­tia mem­bers are chal­lenged within their ca­pa­bil­i­ties and par­tic­i­pate in a wide range of phys­i­cal ac­tiv­i­ties in­clud­ing kayak­ing, ten pin bowl­ing, drum­ming and var­i­ous outdoor ad­ven­tures.

For fur­ther in­for­ma­tion about how you can sup­port Ad­ven­ture with De­men­tia, or for spon­sor­ship op­por­tu­ni­ties, phone Yolanda Gar­cia (07) 5445 5676.
