Some of the misconceptions surrounding dementia will be addressed at an information session at Kempsey Shire Library this week as part of Dementia Awareness Month.
The month aims to make Australians more aware of what it’s like to live with dementia and the support services available to sufferers, their families and carers in the community.
The library will host the Dementia Friends Information Session, presented by Kaylene Parker from Dementia Australia, on Wednesday September 12 at 10.30am. Light refreshments will also be provided.
For more information or to book your place, please contact Kempsey Library on 6566-3210 or send an e-mail to: Kempsey.firstname.lastname@example.org
