About Alzheimers Northland

What do we do?

Alzheimer’s Northland is a not-for-profit community organisation contracted, in part, by Northland District Health Board (NDHB) to provide support, education, information and related services directly to members of the community who are affected by dementia.

We know that the dementia journey can be challenging and people may experience feelings of stress, distress, or have trouble adjusting to their condition. Therefore, our services are designed to provide information and education to enhance greater understanding of a dementia diagnosis, as well as support people to live well and plan for the future.

Importantly we also support family, friends and whanau, to cope with the demands of caring through:

  • home visits
  • phone contact
  • education workshops
  • early memory groups
  • carer support groups
  • day programmes

Everyone’s story is different. Every family is affected in different ways.
