Alzheimer’s Australia congratulates Senator Richard Di Natale and his co-deputy leaders, Senator Larissa Waters and Senator Scott Ludlam, following the announcement today of their appointment as the incoming Greens leadership team.
Carol Bennett, CEO Alzheimer’s Australia, said: “The Australian Greens have been ongoing supporters of improving the services and supports for the more than 340,000 people living with dementia in Australia.
“We look forward to continuing our work with all political parties in a bi-partisan nature. We welcome the opportunity to work with the Greens under the leadership of Senator Di Natale.
“Senator Di Natale’s understanding about the importance of the primary health system, from his experience as a GP, will be significant in helping communities with dementia-related issues like timely diagnosis, early intervention, healthcare and support for individuals, carers and families living with dementia.
“We would also like to thank Senator Christine Milne for her great work while in office and wish her all the best in her future.”
