The results of these studies are published as discussion papers and disseminated widely. Planning Ahead and Living Alone with Dementia will be on the Social Research Agenda for 2011. Get involved!

Lovatts generously provided thousands of puzzle books to give away with our information about the importance of brain health. The puzzles were incredibly popular and ensured a big line-up at our booth. The queen of crosswords, Christine Lovatt, also joined staff and volunteers from Lovatts and AlzNSW to man the booth and talk to concert guests about all things puzzles! Thanks to Lovatts for their support. Premier’s Christmas Gala Concert Christine lovatt (right) talks puzzles with a guest.
