Alzheimers Wellington is dedicated to making life better for all people affected by dementia throughout the Wellington region. Our core services include support, advocacy and education services for family carers and people with dementia. In order to provide our services, we rely on membership fees, donations and grants to supplement partial funding from the two District Health Boards in our area. Our four community workers are based in Island Bay, Petone and Paraparaumu. The Petone office also houses our Manager and Administrator.
The aim of these meetings is to provide a safe environment in which people who are supporting a person affected by a dementia can meet and share their experiences. By meeting together it helps us to understand that we are not alone. For more information, please click here.
Self Supporters Group (for people living with dementia)
These groups are for people who are at varying stages of their journey with dementia. Please call one of the community workers in your area to discuss whether these groups may be appropriate for you. For more information, please click here.
