Dementia is NOT a normal part of ageing community information sessions

Dementia is not a normal part of agingDid you know dementia is the leading cause of death for women, and the second most common cause of death among all Australians1?

SWSPHN are conducting free community information and discussion sessions titled "Dementia is NOT a Normal Part of Ageing" in Camden, Campbelltown and Picton in May 2021.

Topics covered will include:

  • 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 everyone
  • Palliative care – why it is for people with dementia too and not only about dying or cancer
  • What I should know about organ and tissue donation decision-making
