There are a couple of links below for which I ask for your support. The first is a survey aiming to support a more inclusive voice of people with dementia at ADI2015, being held in Perth Western Australia. The phrase ‘nothing about us without us’ is still bantered globally, and until now the voices of people with dementia have not really been listened to, nor given a proper forum. Our presence has been tokenistic, and in my humble opinion so far have supported the organisations, far more than supporting people with dementia.
In 2015 Perth will play host to the Alzheimer’s Disease International conference. Our goal is to ensure it includes, and is guided by, people living with dementia. We would like to hear from people with dementia, or carers of someone with dementia and ask you to spend a few minutes filling out our survey to help guide us as we put the conference plan together. Please click the link below to take part in the survey.
The following is a petition I have copied from the from the Alzheimer’s Australia Facebook page:
