Welcome to a fresh new year and the latest edition of the Byron Carers newsletter
This month’s quick read includes information on:
Medicines and dementia
The new year is a great time to review your medicines and/or those of the person you care for. This month we discuss non-pharmacological treatments for common issues associated with dementia, as well as the informative downloadable booklet from NPS MedicineWise and Dementia Australia about medicines and dementia. This will arm you with knowledge and questions to ask your health professionals.
