Did you know dementia is the leading cause of death for women and the second most common cause of death among all Australians*?
Yet, four out of every ten of us feel awkward around people with dementia.
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 without feeling awkward!
Join us for a FREE tea, discussion and information session on Thursday, 19 September and let’s get talking!
To find out more about planning for possible future health challenges, SWSPHN will be hosting a free morning tea information session and discussion.
Location: Glenquarie Library, 12 Brooks Street, Macquarie Fields
Time & Date: 10am-12pm, Thursday, 19 September

Dementia – what it is, how it can affect future decision-making and prevention
Advance Care Planning – what it is and why it’s important for people with dementia
Palliative care – why it is for people with dementia too and not only about dying or cancer
