Frequently Asked Questions

GENERAL

What is A Roast to Remember?

Community Vision’s A Roast to Remember is a bold initiative raising awareness and funds to support those living with dementia. This bold campaign encourages people to get friends and family together for A Roast to Remember this Spring, to help fundraise for a much- needed community dementia bus that will offer West Australian’s respite, education and peace of mind.

Who is Community Vision?

Community Vision is a not-for-profit community-based organisation that supports individuals living with dementia, their family members, their carers and the community.

Where do the funds go?

All funds raised will go towards a much-needed community dementia bus that will offer West Australian’s respite, education and peace of mind.

The dementia bus will focus on the wider community who don’t have immediate access to local services to trial some of the new innovations such as Virtual Reality and therapy techniques for methods of dealing with a loved one with dementia.

As well as giving a respite break to carers, those staffing the bus will be able to provide useful advice to carers and provide education to schools, to workers and those living with dementia across regional and metro locations in Perth.

How much do I have to raise to participate?

Every little bit counts – we are very appreciative of any amount of funds you care to donate.
