As an official Dementia Champion, I am very proud to support my colleague David Speirs in hosting a forum on Dementia Prevention in conjunction with Alzheimer's Australia SA.
An expert guest from Alzheimer's Australia will provide a presentation on brain health, ways to prevent dementia and we will also hear from someone who is living with dementia. State Liberal Leader Steven Marshall will also be in attendance to hear about this important topic.
Through my role as a Dementia Champion it is my aim to raise awareness about the issues in the health, disability and aged care sectors that could greatly improve the lives of people living with dementia as well as their carers and families. Forums such as this are a wonderful way to bring this issue to the forefront and increase public discussion about making our communities more 'dementia friendly'.
