Community events – ‘Dementia is NOT a normal part of ageing!’


6th February 2020

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

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 to talk about it.
