There is hope after a diagnosis of Alzheimer’s or other related dementias. People live in the community for many years with dementia - Information, education, support and maintaining social connectedness are the keys to living well with dementia and improving ones quality of life.

Caring for someone affected by dementia is often counter intuitive - often what we think the right thing to do can be in many situations, the wrong thing! Accessing information is the key to reducing the stress of supporting someone affected by dementia while at the same time improves both quality of life for both carer/families and the person affected.

Services include a fieldworker to visit you at home, monthly carer support groups and daily MKC Club in Palmerston, twice weekly MKC Club in Feilding, once weekly in Levin and Dannevirke for the person with dementia providing both social stimulation and carer respite.

Please note: Education Sessions to be held in Palmerston North to cover the following topics:

Will be held In Palmerston North at the Diocesan Centre, 33 Amesbury Street on 25 & 27 February 2014 from 10am-12 noon. Booking is appreciated so please contact us on freephone 0800 004 001
