September 2015

During Dementia Awareness Month, Emmy Monash will be holding a number of events.

Art Exhibition

An exhibition of the creative work of residents, including some from our Memory Support Unit, will be displayed in the Lewinsky Plaza throughout the month.

The Art Exhibition is the culmination of months of work by residents inspired by our partnership with the National Gallery of Victoria. The residents produced unique and creative works that will be displayed throughout the month of September.
