The participants had the opportunity to hear from Professor Bianca Brijnath (NARI) on issues around dementia. PRONIA’s Lucy Louka also informed the audience about the program “Stronger Together” that PRONIA runs in order to support people with early stages of dementia and their families/carers.
Vice President of the Greek Community of Melbourne and well-known singer and songwriter Anthi Sidiropoulos entertained the audience with Greek music and songs. At the end of the presentations, all participants were treated to tea and sandwiches and enjoyed meeting others as well as discussing with PRONIA’s staff about the dementia support programs.
