Information Day for Family Carers (2017)

Thank you to the carers and guest speakers who came to our 'Information Day' - an opportunity for family carers to learn more about dementia, dementia research, the signs and behaviours of dementia, and strategies around loss, grief and resilience.

On this webpage you will find the Power Point Presentations generously shared by our guest speakers from the day, as well as useful video and website links.

Dementia Australia SA support services are available for carers, friends, and of course, people with Dementia. Call us on (08) 8372 2100 or visit fightdementia.org.au to find out more.
