Welcome to Dementia Hawkes Bay
Dementia Hawkes Bay is a Charitable Trust. Our focus is a continuation of the development and delivery of quality services to people with a diagnosis of dementia and their family/whanau in the Hawke's Bay region. We always strive for better on behalf of all people in our region living with Dementia.
Our services are unique, as we support people to function well in their own home and within the community from the point of diagnosis and throughout their dementia journey. Other services include the Active Brain Programme, Cognitive Stimulation Therapy workshops, industry education, carer support groups, carer and client education and community awareness.
Dementia Hawkes Bay works collaboratively with other members of Dementia New Zealand and we also continue to work collegially with any organisation that supports people to live well with dementia.
