Leading not-for-profit community-based organisation, Community Vision is leading the way in dementia awareness as WA’s first travelling community dementia bus gets out and about during Dementia Awareness Month (September).

The Dementia Bus will join in on a City of Swan initiative called ‘Be Dementia Aware’, being held at the Western Swan Home Support in Beechboro. The free event is focused on reducing discrimination towards people living with dementia and their carers.

There will also be presentations from Alzheimer’s WA and Dementia Australia about how dementia affects people differently and the chance to find out what support is available for people living with dementia and their support network including the City of Swan dementia specialised services.

All community members interested in learning more about dementia, supporting a dementia friendly community or interested in education and respite services for those living with dementia and their carers, are encouraged to book a place at the event.

Community Visions travelling bus will visit relevant community events such as this City of Swan event throughout Dementia Awareness Month to provide the opportunity for the wider community, who don’t have immediate access to local services to get the education, respite and advice they need when it comes to dealing with those living with dementia. It will also offer access to new technology and innovations such as Virtual Reality (VR) for those living with the disease.

Community Vision’s travelling dementia bus has been made possible by the generosity of West Australians – supporting a bold fundraising campaign called A Roast to Remember. The fundraising campaign encourages people to get friends, family and neighbours together for a special roast dinner and raise funds or simply go online and donate. It will also see the launch of a Celebrity Recipe Booklet later in the year with more info available at A Roast To Remember website.

All funds raised to date are what has made the travelling bus a reality, and further funds raised will be used to service and man the dementia bus and continue its journey, with the aim of visiting a minimum of two locations each week covering metro, regional and rural WA.
