Today I was honoured to be part of the launch for the new name and branding for Alzheimer’s Australia – which is now Dementia Australia.

I was able to be on stage at the national conference with executives including an idol of mine Christine Bryden (advocate). I am also on the plaque which will be featured in every Dementia Australia office in each state.

I am proud of this as it is a legacy of my Dad’s battle with Dementia and the ceremony was very touching with Prof Graeme Samuel becoming emotional on the microphone and saying to me “Your Dad would be so proud of you”. I almost lost it at this point and it was truly a magical moment in my life.

I met so many people today,learnt heaps and was able to mingle with the’ big hitters’ in Australian Dementia Care.

An exhausting but fabulous first day!

What will tomorrow bring????
