Generally we have two activities each month; a semi-formal Dementia Advisory Group Meeting on the first Wednesday of the month (except January) in the Kiama Council offices. This meeting is open to anyone with Dementia who wishes to have direct input into the Kiama Dementia Friendly project. The group also organises informal monthly gatherings at a variety of local points of interest. These activities are styled on the idea of a social picnic, with people getting together over a coffee (or any other beverage) to relax in a non-threatening atmosphere. Click on our Activity-Group-2016 schedule to see where we are meeting this year. Follow the posts to see what’s coming up. For more detail email us on info@southerndag.org
