SAD
South Australian Dementia Association (Incorporation pending)


We are pleased to announce that we are seeking expressions of interest to join a new Dementia related illness group. Email us at:

The aims are:
Persons diagnosed with CJD or other dementia related diseases
Persons caring for someone with the above
Health carers providing care and for those that desire a better understanding of CJD.
Funding for research
Caring for the families of afflicted victims of CJD
Meetings on a bi-monthly basis.

The aim of this group is to assist future victims that may succumb to a dementia related disease that is suspected of being CJD. We do not wish to "re-invent the wheel" as much of the information is common to all dementia groups.

We are non professional, non political and are merely here to help.

Join us if you care.
