This month it seems timely to provide a second 'volume' of resources about COVID-19 and dementia from a variety of perspectives.
August has also seen New Zealand back in heightened COVID-19 alert levels. As the pandemic progresses there is a very real awareness of the vulnerability of people living with dementia, but also heightened appreciation the resilience of our older people and the adaptability of our wonderful dementia workforce.

New Zealand Dementia Foundation: Welcome to a new chapter for the New Zealand Dementia Cooperative
We are now the New Zealand Dementia Foundation. Our heart stays the same, but our message is clearer: Bringing dementia into focus by supporting the dementia workforce to do their best work.
To support you to support people living with dementia during the COVID-19 alert, the New Zealand Dementia Cooperative has collected a number of resources in a special newsletter.
The New Zealand Dementia Cooperative’s mission is to support the dementia sector to create a sustainable, comprehensive, and quality approach to dementia care in New Zealand. We focus on the dementia workforce and the dementia academic community, facilitating their work and forming links with best practice ideas and tools from within the country and internationally. This newsletter puts this mission into action in these extraordinary times.
This newsletter includes a summary of our work undertaken in 2019.
It is an exciting time for dementia care in New Zealand and the NZDC (now NZDF) is ready; engaging with all levels of the health sector’s leadership on the policy and practice changes needed. We’re thrilled to be in this phase of becoming even more effective in our mission at this time when the sector is on the threshold of significantly moving forward.
Here are few of the stories that struck us and some other select snippets about what has been happening.
The Spring Newsletter includes updates on the NZ activities, a meet and greet with some figures in the community, briefings about the International Psychogeriatic Conference and key dementia organisations, and snippets for our research radar and from around Aoteraroa.
