Did you know that more than 50% of New Zealanders do not have a will? By making a will you take control of your legacy and protect those you care about. Public Trust have offered Dementia NZ, their members and family the opportunity to take up a special discount of 15% off the price of an online will.
Use the code DEMENTIAWILL15 for an individual will or the code DEMENTIAWILLM15 for a mirror will (virtually identical wills where one person in a couple leaves their estate to the other in the event of their passing away). Offer valid for 6 months
We have had a lot of positive feedback on the Tips and Activities Sheets we prepared during Covid Lockdown.
These provide useful information for those living with dementia symptoms. Topics include:
- Tips for Activities for people experiencing dementia symptoms
- Tips for Communicating with a person with dementia
- Tips for those experiencing confusion
- Tips for Home Safety
- Tips for Memory Prompts
- Tips for when a person ‘Shadows’ the partner
- Tips for Sleep Issues
- Tips for when a person asks repetitive questions
No one should feel isolated or have to face dementia alone. Help us tackle dementia $3 at a time by supporting our national support desk.

Dementia NZ is committed to supporting the affiliates to create beneficial change in the lives of those affected by dementia, and to lead the conversation around dementia in a more positive and constructive way throughout New Zealand.
Dementia Waikato is cancelling on site groups until further notice.
This is a precautionary measure to protect our vulnerable community.
Until we know how far Covid has spread and due to the high number of Hamilton people who commute to Auckland for work/pleasure/family/whanau we feel this is the safest option. By the 23rd, we will have a much better picture of the community spread and we look forward to welcoming you all back as soon as we feel it is safe.
Keep safe, keep warm.
Manager Dementia Waikato.
