Last week the Aveo Freedom Aged Care Industry Team welcomed close to 100 industry partners to our second professional education and networking evening accredited with The Royal Australian College of General Practitioners (RACGP), Understanding Dementia. The Brighton Savoy set the scene for an insightful and engaging presentation from Brisbane Geriatrician, Dr Anthony French, who updated our knowledge on the disease that is becoming increasingly prevalent in our ageing population. Understanding Dementia delved into all aspects of the disease; from the early stages of diagnosis through to end of life, including treatment options, ongoing management and where to find resources to support our patients and consumers on their ageing journey.
Following the presentation, industry partners were treated to an array of drinks and canapés while mingling with colleagues, catching up with old friends and meeting new contacts in the aged care space. A great night was had by all and the Industry Team is looking forward to inviting our partners to our next event in the coming months.
