Alzheimer’s WA also based in Shenton Park, is a registered not for profit charity designed to assist educate, represent, support and work with over 41,000 west Australians afflicted with all types of dementia.  Dementia is the leading cause of death of women in Australia and the impact of dementia has a huge impact on families who turn to Alzheimer’s WA for direct care, support and assistance.

“There probably isn’t one person, that hasn’t had a friend or relative somehow affected by Dementia like Alzheimers.”

Cornerstone Lodge, is one of the many active Freemason Clubs active across the state, that as part of its unique framework for personal enrichment and growth, that helps continue to build caring communities through such public works as these charitable donations.  Freemasonry has been growing the last few years, particularly with men under the age of 40 seeking to enrich their lives, find mentors from different ages and backgrounds, and a spiritual nature.

“my personal experience was my Father in Law’s experience with Dementia and passing away October last year. So when my Charity Steward suggested Alzheimer’s WA, there was no hesitation. I said go for it.”

Freemasonry has been active in Western Australia since WA’s foundation and provides a place for men to come together and work together to become the best version of themselves and the community by extension of this.  It does this by focusing on the person and what they have in common, and not those things that divide opinion, which is why freemasons don’t talk about religion and politics.
