Other information

The Committee of Management (CoM) of U3APP has considered that we should hold basic awareness training sessions in mild dementia and cognitive decline. These sessions will be designed to help identify and deal empathically with possibly uncomfortable situations that might arise in our day-to-day experiences.
The signs and symptoms of cognitive decline are quite common these days so recognising them may also be of use for you and your friends and family. Recognizing the early signs and knowing how to deal with them will help maximise quality of life.
The presentation will be for one hour with time for questions afterwards.
TUTOR: Sue is a U3A member who has many years of experience in the field of dementia care. She has a PhD in dementia and has focused on patient centred work, including university lecturing and research. She has worked for several years with Dementia Australia. She is an ideal tutor for our sessions.

The presentation will be repeated in 4Z20 on 27 June

How to Enrol

On-line: after bookings have opened

On-line enrolments are preferred as this significantly reduces the amount of back-office work for our volunteers.

  • Login to the U3APP.org.au website.
  • Go to the Courses & Enrolling page.
  • Scroll down to find the course that you are interested in.
  • Does the course have spaces available?
    • Click on the course name to go to the booking page.
    • Click on “Book for this course or event”.
    • You will receive a confirmation email.  Please check your Junk/Spam folders as these automatically-generated emails often finish up there.
  • OR is the course shown as FULL?
    • Click on WAITLIST.

Paper Enrolment Form: before bookings open for First Semester

  • Obtain a paper Enrolment Form either from the Office or by printing an online copy available here.
  • Complete the paper Enrolment Form and submit it to the Office.

The start date for acceptance of paper Enrolment Forms for first semester is published on the U3APP website and in the e-Bulletin. Enrolment Forms received before this date are treated as though they had been received on the start date (ie there is no advantage to be gained by submitting early). On the start date and thereafter, paper Enrolment Forms are numbered in order of receipt.  Paper Enrolment forms are processed by U3APP volunteers on the same day as on-line bookings.

If your enrolment is successful, you will receive a confirmation email.  Please check your Junk/Spam folders as these automatically-generated emails often finish up there.

If your enrolment is unsuccessful,  you will receive an email telling you that you have been waitlisted.
