September is Dementia Awareness Month and Boandik, in conjunction with Alzheimer's Australia, held free community forumsin Millicent and Naracoorte.
'What the community needs to know about dementia' was intended to help everyone better understand dementia, and how communities can work together to help people living with dementia feel included and involved.

"I sincerely thank Boandik Lodge for allowing me the opportunity to be employed by such a highly respected, committed and well-functioning aged care organisation. The learning opportunities that have come my way during my time at Boandik are invaluable. I look forward to watching Boandik Lodge become one of the best aged care providers in the country."
