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!
