Our ‘Creating a Dementia Friendly Kyneton’ project has been shortlisted for the ‘Pick My Project’ community grant initiative and we couldn’t be more excited… but we need your help!!

The ‘Creating a Dementia Friendly Kyneton’ project is spearheaded by the Treehouse at Kyneton District Health. We want to build on our strong links with our local community by providing targeted assistance to businesses in Kyneton to assist them in becoming more dementia friendly. This would include education about dementia by Dementia Australia and a personal review of participating businesses providing ideas on how they could become more dementia friendly through simple changes.

We know that dementia is on the rise in the Macedon Ranges and this program will help build knowledge and confidence around dementia within our community.

All you need to do go online to https://pickmyproject.vic.gov.au, register for an account then vote for ‘Creating a Dementia Friendly Kyneton’ (You can vote for another two projects as well!).

Please encourage as many people as possible voting for the Creating a Dementia Friendly Kyneton’ project!
