History Redcliffe supports Dementia Action Week: 21-27 September, 2020
Beginning on World Alzheimer’s Day, Dementia Action Week is our annual chance to start a conversation about de-stigmatising dementia; a collection of cognitive impairment symptoms affecting about 400,000 Australians and over 46 million people worldwide.
Because it’s heavily stigmatised and looked down on in our communities, dementia is often hidden away or not spoken about, especially when those affected are most in need of support.
This Dementia Action Week, it’s time to get talking and start the process of de-stigmatising dementia.
How to participate
Participating in Walk With Me 2020 is easy.
