About alzheimers otago

Established in 1982 the Alzheimers Society Otago’s mission is to make life better for all people affected by dementia.

Affiliated to Alzheimers New Zealand Inc, Alzheimers Otago is an autonomous society operating from three offices across Otago.

Our primary role is to support people with dementia and the family, friends, neighbours and communities who care for them.

We do this by providing information, support, advice, carer support groups, home visits by qualified staff, education, a shoulder to lean on and a companion on this, at times, long and difficult journey.

We welcome the opportunity to speak to groups, clubs and businesses in the community about dementia, being dementia friendly, and how to support members, friends and colleagues whose lives have been touched by dementia.
