Dementia Tas

What a great opportunity to get out and have important conversations about dementia!Here we are at Northgate in Glenorchy during Dementia Action Week, getting out there and prompting conversations about dementia.
It was amazing the amount of people who stopped by to learn more about Dementia Tas' consultancy and training services and to share their personal dementia stories.
Nobody chooses to have dementia but we can choose how we respond to the people in our lives and in our community who are living with dementia.
