 What We Do

Our trained staff and volunteers work with our clients and the community to support people to live the best life they can with dementia. Our Field Officers work with individuals, families, whanau and any other care partners to find the best solutions for each person's unique situation. There are many ways we can help, whether you have dementia or are caring for someone who has. 

We offer support groups, walking groups, activity groups and companion groups. Talk to us to see if any of these are right for you. Throughout the year we offer a variety of education opportunities.

Our amazing volunteers offer companionship to people with dementia and respite for carers. Our volunteer befriender and companion programmes are highly valued by our clients and make a significant difference in the lives of people living with dementia.

We can also help with any of your general queries about dementia - if you are not sure where to start, give us a call.
