Dementia Tas

Glenview and Roar Films are issuing a call-out for people to take part in an exciting documentary on Korongee 😊😊Would you like to share your story on living with dementia for a documentary being filmed on Korongee?
🎬🎥🎬
Roar Film is working with us to produce a documentary series on Korongee, the village for people living with dementia currently being built in the north of Hobart.

Part of the series will focus on telling the stories of people's lives before dementia, their families, their journeys and hopes.
To tell this story properly, to do it justice, we need a small group of people living with dementia who are willing to share their stories with the world as a way of helping create change.

Even if you're only thinking about Korongee and are not decided, you could help change dementia care policy and practice by taking part in this documentary.

If you're interested in exploring how you can do your bit, please contact Roar Film on
0417 530 621 😊

Dementia Tas

Our dementia consultant Ros attended this weeks' Australian Dementia Forum in Hobart and this is what she said about it:

"It's been great to be able to continue the conversation about dementia and to meet many enthusiastic people who are working towards making a real difference for people who are living with dementia."
😃

Yesterday Glenview's CEO Lucy was part of a panel discussion on dementia research in Australia: past, present and future, where she spoke about Korongee, the village we're building for people who are living with dementia.
Her talk covered the importance of research and community engagement in mapping the future of residential and community care for dementia.
