Alzheimers South Canterbury

Alzheimers South Canterbury has been making a difference to the lives of those affected by dementia for over 25 years. We provide a range of social work, support and education to the people and families in our region that are affected by dementia. We see a significant increase in people affected by dementia every year, and the caring and professional Alzheimers South Canterbury staff, volunteers and committee are committed to making life better for all people affected by it.
