What is dementia?
Dementia describes a collection of symptoms that are caused by disorders affecting the brain. It is not one specific disease.
Dementia affects thinking, behaviour and the ability to perform everyday tasks. Brain function is affected enough to interfere with the person’s normal social or working life.
What many people do not know, is that Dementia is the second leading cause of death of Australians, and in 2021, there are an estimated 472,000 Australians living with dementia Without a medical breakthrough, the number of people with dementia is expected to increase to 590,000 by 2028 and 1,076,000 by 2058 (Dementia Australia)
Dementia Australia x Navarra
Partnering with Dementia Australia is one of the many fundraisers that are an important part of Navarra Care that was founded in 2017 by the Navarra Family. It is the charity arm of the business and our venues are open for fundraisers. This fundraiser shows that Navarra cares for its Dementia victims.
Having a close family member diagnosed with this disorder, has allowed the company to see the vital importance of doing what they can to raise both awareness and funds to aid in future research and assistance. Navarra have partnered up with Dementia Australia every year to put on a charity gala at one of their venues, including ‘The Night of Gold’ that was held at Montage in 2019.
We look forward to this year’s event which is currently being brainstormed and brought to life by our team of incredible coordinator’s, chefs and banquet staff. Stay tuned for more information about this special occasion and how you can help make a difference to those living with, or affected by Dementia.
