UOW/TAFE design team to take part in Illawarra memory walk

Dementia is a deeply personal disease, and this has driven a team at UOW/TAFE Illawarra to create; Desert Rose, the world’s very first dementia-friendly, net-zero energy house.

Many of us here in the Illawarra will have had close encounters with the disease, watching loved ones deteriorate, or feeling our own minds grow confused and fuzzy.

In NSW there are over 138,000 people living with dementia, according to Dementia Australia.
