Alzheimers Hastings provides a range of practical and emotional support, advice and information for people affected by memory loss, Alzheimer’s disease, or any other form of dementia. We support people with the disease as well as their family, whānau and carers in Hastings and Central Hawke’s Bay. We also provide information to the wider local community and advocate on behalf of people affected by dementia. Our services include home visits by community liaison officers, support groups for people with dementia and their carers, education courses and our Chatham Day Club for people with dementia.
A diagnosis of dementia can be devastating for the whole family, so it is important to seek support as soon as possible from professionals who understand what you are going through. Accessing support early also enables people to make decisions about their welfare in the future.
Our community liaison officers (CLOs) offer the following services for people with dementia, thier carers and family/whanau. Anyone can make contact and this service is free.
