What is The RED Conference All About

The RED Conference, A Regional Experience in Practical Dementia Care has been designed to provide a regional perspective on the work being done around practical dementia care, in addition to hearing from experts from overseas and Australia.

With Tweed Heads, Myall Lakes and the Port Macquarie-Hastings featuring in the top three dementia prevalence rates in NSW state electoral districts, it is a wonderful opportunity for people from the Mid North Coast, North Coast, New England, Tweed and Hunter regions to come together and learn from industry experts.

All workshops are designed so that attendees can take away practical and hands-on key learnings to implement immediately in any home or care environments.

If you think you may require respite on the day, you may be able to access this through Commonwealth Respite & Home Care Packages MNC. Bookings are essential, please call 1800 052 222.
