New to dementia?

For anyone new to dementia, we have information sheets available and our team are happy to talk to you about the things you will find useful to know. If you or a family member or friend has had a recent diagnosis, we can work with you to support you to live your best life.

Keep smiling and keep Covid safe out there:

Best wishes to you all, Christine, Dementia Waikato manager.

Remember, our team of Support Coordinators are available by phone, email and online communications tools to support care partners, families and friends through Covid-19 restrictions. 

We are running Zoom sessions to bring groups together. If you, or someone you know would like to be involved:

Phone 07 929 4042 or email connect@dementiawaikato.org.nz 
We will happily guide you through the Zoom process to enable you to join in some sessions and see your friends from Dementia Waikato. Zoom is easy to use after the first session.

Kia ora whanau.
Ko Taupiri te maunga. Ko Waikato te awa. I whanau mai ahau i Kirikiriroa no reira ko Tainui te waka. Kei te noho ahau ki Te Rapa. Ko Christine Martin ahau.
Hello everyone, I am Christine Martin. I am Waikato born and bred, and I have lived in Hamilton most of my life. I was raised, and have raised my own family, in Te Rapa.

Manager Update

Kia ora, we are pleased to advise the Dementia Waikato Team are back in the office at 8 Keddell St. While life isn't quite back to normal, we are looking forward to July when we are expecting some of our groups will also return.
The DW Team are continuing to contact clients and carepartners, to provide support and advice through level 2.  The online Zoom groups are very popular and we can see Zoom being used to support education sessions in outlying areas and to meet with carepartners who live in remote areas.
Thank you everyone for following the guidelines to keep us safe through Covid-19.
Ngā mihi, Christine
