“Nothing is ever really lost to us as long as we remember it” L.M. Montgomery

Every 3 seconds someone in the world develops dementia. It could be your mother, father, grandmother, grandfather, brother, sister or your closest friend. This devastating disease impacts so many people. This festive season we are asking you to help save memories.

250 Australians are diagnosed with dementia every day.

Can you imagine not being able to recall memories of your loved ones? We all have memories; memories define us and make us who we are today. Could you picture your life without your memories?

Amanda lost her Grandmother to dementia and treasures every memory and moment she has of her.

“There is not a day I don’t think about Grandma and the laughs we shared. Grandma taught me my love for baking. I am not the best baker around, but the memories it gives me makes me smile. Every time I bake a cake I remember the year Grandma, my sister and I entered a cake into our local show. It was a simple chocolate cake, we didn’t win a prize but the fun we had and how proud Grandma was of us will always be with me.”

You can help us save memories. Donate today and join us in the fight to find solutions to this disease.
