Port Macquarie is on track to become dementia friendly, with a steering committee set up to turn the idea into reality. Member for Port Macquarie, NSW Parliamentary Friends of Dementia Co-Convenor and Dementia Friendly Steering Committee chair, Leslie Williams MP, visited the UK last year where a number of dementia-friendly communities exist, bringing back ideas for the steering committee. The committee is made up of people living with dementia, carers, representatives from local service clubs, council, emergency services, AlzNSW, the Local Health District, aged-care providers and volunteers. Using local and overseas examples, the committee has developed a strategic plan to help turn Port Macquarie into a more informed community where those living with dementia and their carers will feel more supported and included. AlzNSW is using the Port Macquarie example to compile a Dementia-Friendly Community Guide that can be used by other communities to make their local area friendlier and more inclusive of people living with dementia and their carers. If you have any suggestions for how Port Macquarie can become more dementia- friendly, please contact AlzNSW's Judy Bartholomew.

The national Bring it to the Table fundraising campaign was a great success for AlzNSW in 2013, its inaugural year, but we want you to go one better in 2014. Supporters held events such as trivia nights, barbecues, and even Onesie Wednesday, across NSW. Bring it to the Table is a fun way to raise vital funds to support people living with dementia, their carers, family and friends in NSW. We were thrilled that Rebecca Sullivan, author of Like Grandma Used To Make, and Alice Zaslavsky, host of Kitchen Whiz, lent a hand last year and we look forward to working with them again this year. Our Facebook and Twitter pages ran hot with people sharing how they did Bring it to the Table their own way, all showing great support for AlzNSW. Start thinking now about how you and your family, friends and colleagues can Bring it to the Table this June. Visit www.bringittothetable.com.au for everything you need to get started. You can download invitations, get ideas on events to hold and information on how to register your event. If you would like to know more about Bring it to the Table or how you can be involved, please contact Megan Thomas. T: (02) 8875 4625 E: email@example.com
