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.

Her presentation is titled "Research into better diagnostics and treatments for Alzheimer's disease".
