In 2019, there are an estimated 447, 115 Australians living with dementia.
On Wednesday 14th August 2019, COTA (WA) CEO Christine Allen joined The Honourable Mick Murray MLA, Minister for Seniors and Ageing at the launch event for the Community Vision traveling dementia bus.
This community dementia bus will provide desperately needed respite and information to dementia carers, provide support and access to new technology for those living with dementia and bring vital education into schools.
The first bus visits will take place in September, to coincide with Dementia Awareness month and dementia action week, 16 – 22 September 2019.
