Dementia is NOT a normal part of ageing

Dementia is not a normal part of agingA community information session

Did you know dementia is the leading cause of death for women, and the second most common cause of death among all Australians1?

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.

Attend this free information and discussion session on planning for possible future health challenges. Morning tea included.

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

Following each session each Council’s FREE Café Connect will be there with great food, refreshments and service information.

Four sessions only - please register online to attend

Everyone welcome

Numbers are limited. If your preferred session reaches capacity we can put you on a waiting list; email us with number of attendees and preferred location. We may put on additional sessions if we receive enough interest.
