Edie Mayhew and Anne Tudor

Edie Mayhew and Anne Tudor have been spreading a positive message about living with dementia since 2011. Their wish is for people living with dementia, their carers and families to be treated with respect and dignity. They lead a dementia-friendly initiative in their community of Ballarat called Bigger Hearts, which uses creative projects to share the experience of dementia with others. They believe if you engage your heart with dementia, your heart will grow bigger. That has been their experience as individuals, and as a couple. In, 2016, they received the Minister for Health Volunteer Award, Outstanding Achievement by a Volunteer: Supporting Diversity, as well as Honorary Membership of Alzheimer’s Australia Vic.
