Living with dementia isn’t always easy. Whether you’ve been diagnosed yourself, or you would like to support someone you know, we are here to help.

Our Dementia New Zealand Network covers over 70% of the New Zealand population currently living with Dementia.

We provide:

  • Guidance for people navigating their way to getting a diagnosis of dementia.
  • Support services for care partners, families and people living with dementia – individual support for carers and families, Carer Support Groups, meaningful activity groups for people living with mild to moderate dementia and still live in their own homes
  • Education and information for people whose lives are affected by dementia – Carer Education session, Masterclasses, and specialist topic sessions
  • Education for community groups, professional groups, residential facilities
  • Anti-stigma and awareness campaigns for the general public
