Geoff Field talks Dementia
In the next decade, every single person in Australia will be affected by dementia/Alzheimer’s disease, whether it’s you or someone you know.
On Thursday July 19, our resident News Director Geoff Field was up the North Coast hosting a two day conference on ageing and dementia, organised by the NSW Health Department.
The 2018 Aged Care Symposium was led by carers, doctors, nurses and experts, where they discussed preventative measures, what to do when someone you love is diagnosed, and how to get the message out.
Dementia is a subject that people don’t know a lot about, so the mainstream media needs to step up and start talking about this issue. Take a listen to Geoff’s insights, so you know how to talk about it when you’re affected.
