The first of its kind on the Sunshine Coast, the Adventure with Dementia group provides a supportive social framework, with coordinated activities to help improve the quality of life for those in our community living with Younger Onset Dementia.

The group is targeted at people diagnosed with Dementia who are under the age of 65 ,  who are still fit and active and wanting to have some fun.  Adventure with Dementia members are challenged within their capabilities and participate in a wide range of physical activities.

The group activities also provide the opportunity to create new friendships and enjoyment and is a great way to stay connected with the local community, as well as offering an opportunity for respite for the primary carer.



We know that social engagement and physical activity is good for our brains, this can help us to stay connected, do things that make us feel happy, increase the blood flow to the brain which in turn decreases the “foggy” feeling. Staying socially connected also helps us sleep better and provides greater chances of clarity of thought.

Who can participate?

The group is targeted for young people under the age of 65, as well as those who are over 65, yet fit and active and wanting to have some fun.

How often will the group meet?

Initially the group will meet every month in Buderim as its base meeting point and will be facilitated by a Support Worker and Volunteer, both trained in dementia support and communication.

What type of activities will be on offer?

We will offer a different activity every month, and provide you the flexibility of choice to participate in what you want to do.

This is the first of its kind on the Sunshine Coast, offering an alternative to respite activities, while also offering some down time to spouse’s and carers.

January 2019 – Maroochy Botanical Gardens

The group started the year with a walk through the Maroochy Botanical Gardens at Tanawha. While it was only a small group this time, they enjoyed a leisurely stroll taking in their beautiful surrounds, before gathering for some morning tea in the Garden Cafe.

Oct Boat Cruise

It was a glorious day to be cruising around the Pumicestone Passage. The crew were driven around by Bromilow carer Zach who has a boating background and they enjoyed some morning tea on the boat.
