Free dementia education course in Townsville

In 2018, there are estimated to be more than 82,000 people living with dementia in Queensland and more than 2,100 of these people are estimated to live in the federal electorate of Herbert.

Without a medical breakthrough, the number of people living with dementia in Queensland 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 session is to provide support for Queensland residents living with dementia, as well as provide support and education to their families and carers who are also impacted.

When someone you love is diagnosed with dementia it can be a difficult time. Dementia Australia’s Living With Change course covers effective strategies to help manage daily life and keep healthy following a diagnosis to a loved one or friend.

The course is delivered in a safe, supportive and understanding environment and will also cover techniques for improved communication and the support available within the local community of Townsville.
