Family members and friends attend a three-hour session for four consecutive weeks. It will take place from Wednesday 20 March to Wednesday 10 April (four consecutive Wednesdays) from 10:00 to 13:00. Topics include:

• Understanding of dementia

• Understanding of modified responses

• Effective communication

• care of yourself

• Future planning and legal issues

• Support and services available

Dementia The Australian family assistance program, to be held at the Minlaton Community Health Center, is suitable for family members and friends of a person with a diagnosis of dementia.
