Dementia Action Week

Dementia is a complex condition that affects an individual’s memory, thinking, and behaviour. The condition is marked by the gradual loss of cognitive functions and can cast a shadow on the lives of those it touches. This process can interfere with daily life and activities, creating challenges that extend beyond memory alone. 

But the impact doesn’t stop at the individual – families find themselves learning to embrace the unexpected. Caregivers, often family members, become the architects of patience and understanding. The shared laughs and stolen moments of clarity become the building blocks of resilience. Society, too, learns the importance of compassion and accessible support systems. Dementia isn’t just a personal challenge; it’s a communal responsibility to ensure that every person, regardless of memory’s whims, continues to be valued and included. 

Dementia doesn’t discriminate, and neither do we. Our services are designed to be inclusive and accessible, ensuring that everyone, regardless of their background or abilities, receives the support they deserve. At LiveBig, diversity is our strength, and we are committed to fostering an environment of acceptance and understanding. 

At LiveBig, we are here to walk this journey with you, to embrace the uniqueness of every individual, and to demonstrate that a life with dementia can still be a life lived to the fullest. 

Crazy Hair Day for Cystic Fibrosis – 29th July

What is Cystic Fibrosis?

Cystic Fibrosis is the most common, inherited genetic disorder affecting young Australians – it impacts the lungs, digestive system and other organs in the body. People with the condition often suffer lung infections, breathing difficulties, liver disease, brittle bones and infertility.

For a person to inherit Cystic Fibrosis, both parents must have a faulty CFTR gene. If both parents carry an abnormal CFTR gene, the chances of their child inheriting the condition are 25%.

Cystic Fibrosis is life-shortening and there is no cure, although treatments can help to improve a patient’s quality of life and life expectancy. 

All money raised during Crazy Hair Day goes towards helping the Cystic Fibrosis Federation Cystic Fibrosis Federation in Australia provide vital support to those suffering from cystic fibrosis.
