There were a lot of stories and and lots of experience shared at our third Growing older with Down syndrome seminar, with 35 family members attending on Saturday (30th July). We covered a lot of ground, including health matters. Our thanks to Danielle White from Alzheimer's Australia NSW for joining us for part of the day to discuss the difficult issues raised by the increased risk of developing dementia faced by older people with Down syndrome and their families.
