Alzheimers Taranaki is a registered charity dedicated to supporting anyone affected by dementia in Taranaki. Dementia affects many people in our community, not just those with the condition but their families, friends and colleagues. The incidences of dementia are increasing as our population ages and added to that is the fact that people are also presenting at a younger age with dementia. We provide day programmes for people with dementia, support to their families and care partners, education sessions both in rest homes and the wider public, and much more. We rely on the goodness of volunteers and the generosity of donations to continue being able to offer our services at no charge.
