Attend an event near you
During Dementia Action Week individuals, community groups and organisations are hosting events to help spread community awareness. We encourage you to get involved by attending one of these events and learning more about dementia and discrimination experienced by those living with dementia, their families and carers.
Discrimination and dementia. The health issue of our time.
Dementia Australia’s headline event for Dementia Action Week 2019 will be held at the Sydney Opera House on Monday 16 September.
It will include a panel discussion with Dementia Australia Ambassador Ita Buttrose AC OBE; Maggie Beer AM, Australian food icon; Shaynna Blaze, interior designer, host of Selling Houses Australia on Foxtel and a judge on the Nine Network’s The Block, and Dementia Advocate Phil Hazell. The panel will be facilitated by Sky News Australia Political Editor David Speers.
