How Australia’s first dementia-friendly trail works
Australia’s first dementia-friendly sensory walking trail has been unveiled at Ballarat.
Anne Tudor, from Bigger Hearts Dementia Alliance Ballarat, told 3AW it was a special moment.
Her partner, Edie Mayhew was diagnosed with early-onset dementia in her 50s.
Anne helped bring the project to life.
“Firstly, the entire plan and every aspect of the trail was co-designed by people with dementia,” she said.
“That, in itself, makes it very different.”
