Congratulations to Sr Bernadette Wallis MSS who is in the midst of launching The Silent Book.
The book is a tribute to her family and the disappearing
Australian-Irish Sign Language, as well as to the broader deaf community
and its families. Proceeds from the sale of the book go to the John Wallis Foundation.
The 2016 Caroline Chisholm Centre for Health Ethics
Conference is on The Challenges of Dementia. Over the next three decades, the
number of people living with dementia in Australia will almost triple. This
calls for significant changes both in Australian society, and in organisations
which provide health, community and aged care.
