Advance care planning helps you, the important people in your life and your health care team plan for your end-of-life care.

It helps you understand what the future might hold, and to say what health care you would or would not want. This makes it much easier for everyone to understand your wishes – especially if you can no longer speak for yourself.

To find out more and to begin your Advance Care Plan, go to www.myacp.org.nz

We often get a lot of people contacting us in the new year, as, after spending time together over the holidays, people have picked up on signs and symptoms that a family member or friend may have dementia. Memory loss might be the most common symptom of dementia – but it’s not the only one.

Become a Dementia Friend today and join a growing community of people helping to make New Zealand a more supportive, inclusive and understanding place for people living with dementia. Simply CLICK HERE to complete the programme!
