Rural Mobile Day Care
The Alzheimers Society Northland realised that people living in rural areas did not have the resource of a Day Care facility available to them. The Society has staff who provide supervision and activities to people with dementia.
'Alz Club' provides a "fun day out" for the person with dementia and a "day off" for the Caregiver.
Please contact our Community Advisors for details on referring to this service. Click here
Carer Education Seminars
Alzheimers Society Northland Carer Education Seminars are designed to give the Home Carer an understanding of dementia, some of the problems they may encounter and ways of coping with them and the many changes they and their loved one may be experiencing.
Please contact the office for details of when the next Seminar will be held in your area.
The values of Alzheimers Society Northland (Inc.) are: Accessibility, Leadership, Zest, Holistic approach, Equalilty, Inclusions, Motivation, Empathy, Respect and Support.
