Dementia Action Week occurs in September each year. Hosted by ABC broadcast journalist, Dan Cox, the Laughter and Tears podcast series invites members of our community living with dementia to share their experiences of love, loss, courage and hope. It provides current information from medical experts and looks at dementia services available in the Hunter region and beyond. 

How do I know If I have Dementia?  

A diagnosis of dementia can be a frightening and overwhelming experience for the individual and their family. It can also provide relief. Australia’s pre-eminent researcher in the field, Professor Sue Kurrle will provide answers to many of the questions we have about dementia. As director of the Cognitive Decline Partnership Centre, Faculty of Medicine and Health, Sydney University 
and Curran Professor in Health Care of Older People, Susan Kurrle places the person living with dementia at the heart of her research and advocacy.  Susan will be joined by locals, Rob and Alison Board who describe their journey with dementia so far.
