Alzheimer’s Australia NSW is reminding the community to check-in on elderly neighbours and friends during periods of extreme heat, especially people living with dementia.

Alzheimer’s Australia NSW CEO The Hon. John Watkins AM said people living with dementia and their carers may need extra support during the current period of hot weather.

“A person living with dementia may need some assistance when it comes to coping with the summer heat,” Mr Watkins said.
