About this event

Presented by Garrie O'Toole, Alzheimer's Australia Vic facilitator

Aim: Join us to find out what dementia is and what it is not. This seminar will explain, in simple terms, what dementia is including main causes, especially Alzheimer's disease, key signs and symptoms and risk factors. It will also explain why changes to behaviour occur. Common myths and misconceptions about dementia will be addressed as well as concerns you might have. In addition, the seminar will explain the importance of seeking a diagnosis if noticing changes, treatments and interventions available and how you can access further information as well as appropriate support and services if and when needed.

Suitable for: This seminar is suitable for the general community which may also include health professionals, family carers and people with dementia.
