This January, two people close to Dementia Australia were included in the Australia Day Honours, each being named Officer of Australia in the General Division.
Paul Robertson AO is a Dementia Australia Board member and has been recognised for his distinguished service to the community through ethical leadership and management of, and philanthropic contributions to, health, social enterprise, research, education and arts organisations.
Emeritus Professor David Ames AO has been an invaluable supporter of Dementia Australia for more than 20 years. He has been honoured for his distinguished service to psychiatry, particularly in the area of dementia and the mental health of older persons, as an academic, author and practitioner, and as an adviser to professional bodies.
Dementia Australia extends its congratulations on these much deserved achievements, and thanks both Paul and David for everything they have done and continue to do to improve the lives of all people impacted by dementia.
