Our Story

On Sunday 17th of May I will attempt to set a personal best 8km time at the Geelong Memory Walk & Jog. Coincidentally, this is the same distance my Dad excelled at in England during the 50’s and 60’s.

Dementia is more than “memory loss”. It is the second leading cause of death in Australians

Dementia describes a collection of symptoms caused by disorders of the brain. It is not one specific disease. There are many different types including Alzheimer's disease, Vascular dementia, Dementia with Lewy bodies and Fronto Temporal Lobar Degeneration (FTLD).

Dementia affects every aspect of a person, from thinking, behaviour and the ability to perform everyday tasks. Eventually the person may become severely disabled and unable to move or speak.

Dementia Australia are an incredible resource, offering support services to both people living with dementia and their carers. They also conduct vital research into causes, diagnoses, treatment and prevention.

Please consider donating to assist in the ongoing support, research and education about this insidious disease.
