For more information go to www.alzheimers2011.com International dementia experts include Professor Steven R. Sabat Professor Raymond Tallis • Ms Diana Kerr People On behalf of our members, Alz NSW would like to thank all the volunteers who give up their time to provide valuable help to our staff around NSW. Volunteers make a huge contribution to our organisation, for which we are very grateful. Here are just some of the many volunteers who give us regular, ongoing support. Stan Stark & Raimund Stienen Stan has become a welcome, familiar face around the new Gibson- Denney Centre in North Ryde, having lent a very valuable hand to staff during the move to the new building. With organisational skills second to none, Stan has reorganised the administrative services resource area, as well as implementing a very easy-to-use storage and retrieval system and a stock management structure. A well-loved regular in the administrative office at North Ryde, Raimund also provided a lot of very welcome help during the move to the Gibson-Denney Centre. Raimund also gives his time each week to assist the Corporate Services team with valuable administrative support, in particular with the membership database, along with anything else they need assistance with. Lois Allanson Lois runs the Hunter Dementia and Memory Resource Centre choir, a much-loved social gathering at the centre which attracts a vast membership including people with dementia, their carers and other community members. The group has been singing together under Lois' leadership for much of the year, and a small group of the singers is looking forward to their first performance at the 10th Memories Services, to be held at Christ Church Cathedral during Dementia Awareness Week (see page 15 for details). Mariola Brock Mariola regularly provides administrative support to the team at the Hunter Dementia and Memory Resource Centre. She also helps in the library and with data entry, and is a lovely, welcoming face to visitors at the centre, offering cups of tea and a friendly listening ear. Our volunteers Kath Story A founding member of AlzNSW, Kath continues her long, valued contribution to the organisation as an active volunteer at our Dementia and Memory Community Centre at Port Macquarie. Kath established and runs the Carers' Coffee and Chat, a monthly social catch- up for carers, organises a bi-monthly dinner for carers, and helps out at events held by the centre. Gail Hodson Gail provides an enormous amount of administrative help on the phones at the Hunter Dementia and Memory Resource Centre as well as helping staff on social outings with clients.
