Did you know that there are more than 440,000 Australians living with dementia? With figures like this, it is more likely than not that you will know or care for someone with dementia during your life.

Gordon Library is proud to partner with the Dementia Occupational Therapy Services to present a workshop designed to educate and equip you with the best tools to interact with and care for those living with dementia more effectively.

Topics will include:

  • What is dementia.
  • What are the causes, signs and symptoms.
  • Strategies for managing challenging behaviour.
  • Making homes more dementia friendly.
  • Self-care strategies for family and carers.

Light refreshments will be served.
