In Australia, dementia represents the single biggest cause of disability in those aged over 65, more than 400,000 people live with it. Nearly 1 in 10 people over 65 have dementia.  It's thought that there will be more than 589,000 people with dementia by 2028 and over a million by 2058.

SPM Law are pleased to invite you to a free one hour presentation and morning tea  - Alzheimer's, Dementia and Ageing Research to be held at RACV Resort Noosa on Tuesday 17 September from 10am.

Special guest presenter, Professor Lyn Griffiths, Executive Director of Queensland University of Technology's Institute of Health and Biomedical Innovation (IHBI) will share what her research team is learning about Alzheimer's and ageing and the prospects of halting or slowing down these conditions in the future. Her presentation is titled "Research into better diagnostics and treatments for Alzheimer's disease". 

Senior Associate Andrew Markert will follow Professor Griffiths and discuss how having an Enduring Power of Attorney (EPOA) and/or Advance Health Directive (AHD) in place now will ensure your wishes are met if you do lose capacity.
