Workshops and Seminars

A diagnosis of dementia brings with it many changes and challenges for the person with dementia and those who care for them. To support family members and professional carers get a better level of understanding and knowledge, AQ offer a variety of education on dementia.  Our dementia education will equip you with increased knowledge about dementia and the impacts on lifestyles, functional abilities and behaviours.  You will also learn how to provide support, strategies and techniques that may assist in improving independence and maintaining quality of life. 

 

To register for our seminars or to request a tailored workshop please call 1 800 639 331 or email enquiries@alzqld.org.au. You will be required to submit a completed registration form for attendance to seminars.
