The Lions Alzheimer’s Foundation (LAF) was launched in Perth, Western Australia, in 2016, after more than 10 years of fundraising from Lions clubs throughout Australia.
In 1907, German psychiatrist and neuropathologist, Dr Aloysius “Alois” Alzheimer, published a paper on presenile dementia for the very first time, based on a patient study.
It wasn’t until 1910 that the condition became known as Alzheimer’s disease.
Alzheimer’s is a chronic neurodegenerative disease and the most common form of dementia.
The condition starts slowly, worsening over time as it damages the brain and causes symptoms including memory impairment, confused thinking and behavioural changes.

Proceeds from Maggie’s Recipe for Life will be shared between the Maggie Beer Foundation and the Lions Alzheimer’s Research Foundation.
