Dementia STARs are coming!

We are thrilled to announce a partnership with the CHT Aged Care Fund to create and share a new training resource: Dementia STARs - Short Trainings in Awareness and Responsiveness. The aim of Dementia STARs is to provide a nationally available resource to facilitate ongoing in-service education in best practice dementia care. Dementia STARs will provide a series of ‘ready to use’ downloadable kits with an educator’s guide and Powerpoint, video, infographic and other resources to use as a base for interactive in-service staff education sessions. The suite of eight Dementia STARs will cover a range of practical facets of supporting people with dementia to live well and stay well through awareness and responsiveness. 

Dementia STARs will be made freely available through the NZDF website, launching in late March 2022. 

Stuart Tabuteau, Acting CEO at CHT Healthcare Trust says “CHT is a charitable trust that has been taking great care of older people for over 55 years at our network of 16 aged care locations. The purpose of the CHT Aged Care Fund is to enhance the wellbeing of older people by providing funds through a selected number of grants each year”. We thank the CHT Aged Care Fund for their vision in joining with us to offer this exciting resource to the sector. 

He taonga rongonui te aroha ki te tangata - Goodwill towards others is a precious treasure.

We would like to say a special thank you to Netpotential and Choir for supporting our beautiful new look, and to Summerset for their valued ongoing support.
