News and Resources

Thank you Kapiti! We raised $4983 at the Kapiti Street Appeal last month.

Every dollar raised will go towards funding front line support for our clients, like the Living Well with Dementia course we have just held in Paraparaumu, for people who have recently been diagnosed with dementia.

Courses and events designed specifically for people affected by dementia are so crucial, because, as one client said, “I found it easier to talk about my feelings and concerns with others in the same situation rather than my family, I don’t like to upset them.”

Once again, thank you who collected or donated; we couldn't have done it without you!

Would you like to find out more about the fantastic Cognitive Stimulation Therapy course we ran recently for people with dementia? As one participant said: “We know that this is helping us, and to be able to put that on paper, to let people know about it, well, hopefully that will help others too.”

As part of our Living Well With Dementia programme, we're delighted to offer a FREE six session yoga course starting in September for people with dementia and anyone supporting a person with dementia.

You probably know someone affected by dementia, either in your family or in your community. Will you fundraise for them in the Neon Night Run/Walk?

Thank you to everyone who attended our AGM last week. If you weren't able to make it, our latest Annual Report is available here.
