Care manager Ann Nolan, who is passionate about raising the public’s awareness of dementia and Alzheimers, hosted a Bring it to the Table fundraising lunch at the hostel.

‘It was a way of bringing residents together for lunch and raising awareness and funds for Alzheimer’s WA,’ she said.

‘We decked the room in purple, had a three-course meal and raised more than $700 while having fun.’

Dementia is the impairment of thinking and memory that interferes with a person’s ability to do things they previously were able to do and Alzheimer’s disease is the common cause of dementia.
