When you visit

  • Respect time – they are busy!
  • Give them no more than three essential messages; e.g. Numbers of people with dementia mate wareware are growing rapidly; Aotearoa New Zealand has an action plan for dementia mate wareware; Government must implement it now to protect the wellbeing of thousands of Kiwis.
  • Ask them for their views on dementia mate wareware and the need for a plan.
  • Thank them.
