DEMENTIA Australia is excited to be providing free information sessions in Bathurst and Oberon on April 21 and 22 for people impacted by dementia.
The Dementia Australia Brain Hubs are an opportunity for people living with dementia and carers to attend free information sessions about dementia and to discuss the support and services Dementia Australia can provide.
On Wednesday, April 21, from 11am to 2pm, we will be holding an information stall at Oberon outside the IGA on the main street.
Dementia Australia staff will be available to answer any questions you have or provide information you may need.
On Thursday, April 22, we will then be hosting a family and carer education session at the Bathurst Neighbourhood Centre from 1pm to 3pm.
This session is open to families and carers, as well as people living with dementia. Bookings are essential and people can register by visiting www.dementia.org.au/events
With an estimated 3600 people living with dementia in the federal electorate of Calare, support services are critical and we are pleased we are able to provide this essential education in the region.
Through our Brain Hub sessions, we can reach more people living in regional and rural areas where there is a need for further support.
No matter where you live in Australia, we are here for you.
If you are not able to attend, you can still contact Dementia Australia via the National Dementia Helpline on 1800 100 500 from 8am to 8pm, Monday to Friday, excluding public holidays.
