DATA released by Alzheimer’s Australia earlier this
month estimates there are currently 1271 people liv-
ing in the Bass electorate with dementia, and that in the
absence of a significant medical breakthrough, this is
expected to grow by more than 340% to 5612 by 2050.
In light of this alarming increase in the prevalence of
dementia, Alzheimer’s Australia Vic is continuing im-
portant work in raising awareness about dementia and
where to go for help.
A free event will be held in Cowes on Tuesday March
8, ‘Dementia – breaking down the myths’, at which ex-
perienced Alzheimer’s Australia facilitator Laurel Gour-
lay will explain in simple terms what dementia is, what
causes it, signs and symptoms as well as risk factors.
The one and a half hour information session will also
explain why changes in behaviour occur with dementia
and look at common myths and misconceptions.
The free seminar will explain the importance of seek-
ing a diagnosis when changes are noticed as well as
provide advice on how further information and support
services can be accessed when they’re needed.
Ms Gourlay said that research shows that there are a
lot of misconceptions in the community about dementia
“so this is an excellent opportunity to come along and
hear accurate and up-to-date information.” The infor-
mation we’ll give is suitable for anyone in the commu-
nity, from family carers, to people living with dementia,
to local health professionals and anyone with an interest
in learning more about dementia, Ms Gourlay said.
“There’s an opportunity to ask questions from the
floor too, which I’m certainly happy to answer.
“The prevalence of dementia is increasing right across
Australia and the Bass electorate is no exception so it
would be fantastic to see lots of people come along and
find out more about it” said Ms Gourlay.
The free seminar will be held at The Uniting Church,
in Chapel Street Cowes on Tuesday March 8 from 2pm
It is free to attend but people need to register by call-
ing 9816 5708 or online at https://register.eventarc.
