About Dementia is the first in a comprehensive series of booklets being developed to provide New Zealanders with the most up to date knowledge and information available on dementia.
Alzheimers New Zealand (NZ) is leading a cross-agency project to develop a new, nationally consistent suite of resources for people affected by this growing health issue. The groups working with Alzheimers NZ are the Ministry of Health, representatives from the four DHB Regional Dementia work streams, and the National Dementia Cooperative.
Information that is easily accessible, consistent and regularly reviewed to represent ‘best practice’ is an essential component in supporting people with dementia and their carers. Providing people affected by dementia with better information will ensure they have more timely access to support and a decrease in carer burden.
The project utilises a collaborative and consultative approach working across the dementia sector, drawing on the knowledge and expertise within the sector to produce relevant and up-to-date resources, and drawing on formal and informal networks to promote use of the new suite of resources.
