About us

Alzheimers Whanganui takes a positive approach to living with dementia. 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 porewarewa.  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.
