Our mission is to break down the stigma attached to dementia and raise awareness, while offering support and hope to approximately 15,000 A
With no known cure, and one in three people affected by it, almost everyone knows someone touched by this deteriorative, neurological disease. Our dedicated teams provide advice, telephone consultations, home visits, educational resources, walking and interest-based activity groups and our Carer Support program means that help is available to those with the enormous task of being a carer.
For nearly 30 years Dementia Auckland have provided support, information and practical help to anyone affected by dementia. The latest statistics are staggering, numbers are predicted to increase three-fold by 2050, to over 150,000 New Zealanders. We help those with dementia and their families, live well and make the most of life. But we need your help.
