Alzheimers Whanganui takes a positive approach to living with dementia/mate wareware. We focus on what a person is still able to do rather than what has been lost. We are the only organisation in Whanganui, Rangitikei and Waimarino solely dedicated to making life better for all people affected by dementia – Kia piki te ora mo nga tangata mate pōrewarewa. Our Support service involves working with the person with dementia, the main carer; the extended family/whānau and the community.
A donation made as a gift ‘in memory of’, is a lovely way to honour and celebrate someone’s life, while helping us to support people living with dementia. You may want to ask for donations to Alzheimers NZ in lieu of flowers at a funeral.
Membership is $25 per annum for individuals/family; $60 for corporate and $500 life membership.
Make your next tea or coffee break count. A fun way to help support local families.
Do you have a spare hour or two between 9am and 4pm on a Friday in March, to jiggle a bucket on our behalf for our annual Street Appeal or throughout the year could you help to sell raffle tickets outside a supermarket.
A small bequest will make a big difference to the lives of many people affected by Alzheimers and other dementias in the Whanganui, Rangitikei and Waimarino.
