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.
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.
