Magnolia Month Supporting Dementia Awareness

$886 of $10,000 goal
Given by 14 generous donors in around 4 months

Our mission is to ensure anyone affected by dementia will have the support, freedom & confidence to continue to make the most of every day.


4 out of 5 people are affected by dementia in some way. It impacts almost everyone.

A diagnosis of dementia deeply affects each and everyone it touches. There are 70,000 Kiwis diagnosed with dementia and this number is anticipated to triple by 2050.

Dementia NZ service organisations are by the side of individuals, families, networks and

communities to ensure those affected by dementia have the freedom and confidence to

make the most of every day. Through awareness, education and support, it’s our mission to help improve the quality of life for those affected by dementia.

Still Me has been developed to help change the way we think, feel and talk about dementia. It reflects the truth of self in the condition for the person affected by dementia and the brave person who is supporting them. A reminder that we need to see the person not the diagnosis.

The magnolias wrapped around the words inspire due to their ability to survive and adapt to their ever-changing environment, representing stability, grace and dignity.

Still Me.

I am still me. Let go of expectation and lets just be.
