Alzheimer's Australia National Summit 2013

Alzheimer’s Australia will be hosting their inaugural Younger Onset Dementia: A New Horizon - National Summit on Wednesday 20 March 2013 at Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre.

This unique and groundbreaking summit will provide a forum for over 250 service providers, stakeholders and policy makers across the aged care, disability and mental health sectors to discuss and address the challenges they face in the provision of younger onset dementia services.

Attendees will hear directly from people with younger onset dementia and their families about their particular challenges and aspirations for a service sector that better addresses their needs.

Guests will also be addressed by a host of National and International speakers who are leading the way in best practice for younger onset service provision.

Centre for Cultural Diversity in Ageing acknowledges and pays respect to the Wurundjeri people of the Kulin nation, on whose land this website was developed. We pay our respects to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples, their ancestors and elders, both past and present and acknowledge their continuing connection to land, sea and community. We hope our work contributes to the wider project of respect and recognition between cultures in Australia. Centre for Cultural Diversity in Ageing receives project funding from the Australian Department of Health to administer the Partners in Culturally Appropriate Care (PICAC) program in Victoria.
