In 2018, an estimated 425,416 Australians will be living with dementia, the second leading cause of death in our country. In response to these alarming figures and a need to support and educate those living with and affected by, leading not-for-profit community-based organisation, Community Vision, has developed
A Roast to Remember.
This bold campaign encourages people to get friends and family together for A Roast to Remember this Spring to help fundraise for a much-needed community dementia bus that will offer West Australians respite, education and peace of mind.
The dementia bus will focus on the wider community who don’t have immediate access to local services to trial some of the new innovations such as Virtual Reality and therapy techniques for methods of dealing with a loved one with dementia.
As well as giving a respite break to carers, those staffing the bus will be able to provide useful advice to carers and provide education to schools, to workers and those living with dementia across regional and metro locations in Perth.
A Roast to Remember is simply a matter of inviting friends and /or family to a meal, serving a roast and raising funds. And if you are not a meat eater, roast a fish or simply enjoy a plate of your favourite veggies and gravy.
By going to the website you will be able to download invitation invites and thank you cards for your event. You will also see here frequently asked questions to answer anything about the campaign. We will also be giving prizes for the largest fundraisers.
Community Vision invites the whole community to participate in A Roast to Remember.
This is a fantastic opportunity for us all to be involved at whatever level we can, raising awareness of Community Vision and for those living with Dementia.
