Alzheimers Nelson Tasman has two Dementia Advisors providing support to all those who are living with Alzheimers Disease and other related dementias. One is full time covering the region of Nelson, Stoke, Atawhai and the other part-time covering Tasman including Richmond, Wakefield, Motueka through to Golden Bay. This person is also our Manager and Educator.
Our Society provides information, resources, support, advocacy and education to people with dementia, their care partners and their families. We run a number of monthly carer support groups and social groups throughout our Nelson Bays region and also run an Early Memory Programme to help support people recently diagnosed. Our Educator provides education to rest homes, gives talks to community groups and other interested parties. Please call ahead on (03) 546 7020 if you wish to visit as we are a small team often out and about and we’d like to make sure we do connect.
