During September the Northern Beaches Dementia Alliance (NBDA) was established in Sydney. The NBDA boasts a wealth of knowledge and experience from passionate individuals in the aged and dementia care sector, community as well as those impacted by dementia.
This Alliance will govern the implementation of an ongoing project to work towards becoming a dementia friendly community in the Northern Beaches. During 2019, the NBDA will facilitate community education workshops, an intergenerational education program and a music therapy program. The NBDA is establishing strong partnerships with local individuals, community, organisations and government with the goals of promoting inclusion, increasing awareness of dementia and facilitating social change in the Northern Beaches area.
