Annual General Meeting

MWA NSW will hold its Annual General Meeting on the 12th of November at Port Kembla Se. All members are urged to attend the meeting to hear the achievements over the last financial year and learn about future direction of the MWA NSW.

Dementia Information Session

More then 80 people attended our Dementia Information Session on the 22nd of October at Port Kembla community center. Information was provided by Multicultural Health Services, Dementia Advisory Services, Illawarra Commonwealth Respite Carelink Centre and a Personal Carer’s Story was shared by Ilo. The high number of attendeds and the fact that we are an aging community indacates that there is a big interest about dementia and a need for dementia specific daycare for the Macedonian Community.
