Dementia Action Week

Home Care North West on their Memory Walk along the Devonport foreshore. Fifteen people in total took part, including other dementia workers in the community. 

Southern Cross Care staff have been taking part in the Memory Walk & Jog and raising funds this week as part of Dementia Australia’s Dementia Action Week.

Dementia Australia will use the money raised to provide vital support services for people living with dementia, their families and carers. This much-needed help includes counselling, support groups, education and training for professionals in our local area. 

Staff have been walking together and on their own throughout the week and have so far raised $1,075.

Dementia is the second leading cause of death in Australia and there is no cure, if you would like to donate to Southern Cross Care’s Memory Walk & Jog you can do so here.
