What’s happening on the ground?
Our frontline services are at breaking point. More funding is desperately needed to help people and whānau living with dementia mate wareware in Aotearoa New Zealand get the support they need.
Government has already indicated their support with the implementation of the Dementia Mate Wareware Action Plan, and their support for healthy ageing in Te Pae Tata Interim New Zealand Health Plan. However, there is still more work to be done in the lead up to the 2023 election.
We’re joined by Alzheimers South Canterbury services manager Rosie Chambers and Alzheimers Tauranga/Western Bay of Plenty general manager Glenn Bradley to hear their insights about what’s really happening on the ground.
