Sandra Erickson has worked for Dementia Australia in a variety of roles including: Community Speaking, Walking Groups, sharing her personal experience of caring for her late husband, participating in the Victoria Police Community/Custody Encounters Program, advising police recruits about treating dementia, and directly helping people living with the illness.
Dementia Australia represents more than 436,000 Australians living with dementia and the estimated 1.5 million Australians involved in their care. They work with individuals and families, all levels of government, and other key stakeholders to ensure people of all ages with all types of dementia, as well as their families and carers, are appropriately supported – at work, at home (including residential aged care), or in their local community. They are an important advocate for those impacted by dementia, providing input on policy matters, and identifying service gaps.
During the COVID19 lockdown, General Meetings will be held as ZOOM meetings.
The first half of the meeting is devoted to reports of Club activities and information about future planned events.
After morning tea, the meeting is addressed by a guest speaker. (Click on “General Meeting” above for each year’s speakers since 2012).
After the meeting, a number of members choose to get together for lunch at a local restaurant.
There is ample free parking in nearby streets, or you can come by tram – we are on the ‘109’ route that runs to and from Box Hill (stop 50).
You will receive a warm welcome, and someone will be assigned to introduce you to other members. Come join us.
