Free dementia education course in Toowoomba

Are you caring for a loved one who is living with dementia? Dementia Australia is holding a free community education course for residents of Toowoomba involved in the care of someone living with dementia.

In 2018, there is estimated to be more than 82,000 people living with dementia in Queensland and more than 5,800 of these people are living in the federal electorates of Groom (3,100) and Wright (2,700).

Without a medical breakthrough, the number of people in Queensland living with dementia is expected to increase to more than 116,000 people by 2028 and more than 207,000 people by 2058.

The aim of Dementia Australia’s education sessions are to provide support for Queensland residents living with dementia by providing information to carers, family members and friends who are involved in their care.

Dementia Australia’s Living with Change course spans over two days and is designed to support and assist with feelings experienced by carers, family members and friends of people living with dementia.

The course also provides participants with an opportunity to meet with others who are sharing a similar experience, allowing time to socialise and share important links to local support services that can improve carer well-being.

Registrations for the below course are essential and specific location details will be provided upon registration.
