In conjunction with Dementia Action Week, which runs from Monday 18th September to Sunday 24th September, Lifebridge Australia invite you to attend our Information Session which will be held in “The Glass” function room at Club Tweed, cnr Wharf and Florence Street, Tweed Heads from midday onwards.
Relax and enjoy a delicious lunch beforehand in Bistro 16. The menu is very extensive and includes salads, burgers, seafood, paddock, pizza, pasta or stir fry. Something for everyone.
Guest speakers will be sharing their own personal dementia journey.
Dementia affects close to half a million Australians. That number is set double in the next 25 years. Many Australians will start experiencing the impact of dementia amongst their own family and friends in the coming years.
This year’s theme is Act Now for a Dementia-Friendly Future. Since 2019, the focus of the Dementia Action Week campaign has been to reduce stigma and discrimination experienced by people living with dementia and their carers.
Communities that take action to become dementia-friendly have:
• less fear and a greater understanding of dementia.
• less stigma and discrimination.
• more support and better systems for people living with dementia to live well in their community for longer.
During Dementia Action Week, we encourage you to reach out to your community and learn more about the needs of people living with dementia, their families and carers who are living in your area.
