For information about our upcoming AGM and the three documents that relate to the proposal to change from an incorporated society to a charitable trust please click here.

Research shows that the 'treatment' of dementia should be one of 'care rather than cure', with person-centred, purposeful, stimulating experiences and activities that offer hope and means to maximise quality of life. Dementia Canterbury provides free person-centered services for people diagnosed with a dementia and their families.

Our aim is to support people to continue to lead fulfilling lives after a dementia-diagnosis, to raise community awareness and break down barriers associated with all dementias and work towards a dementia-friendly and responsive community, one where people living with dementia feel safe and confident to participate in activities in the community.

Dementia Canterbury area includes: West Coast/Buller, Kaikoura, Ashburton & North Canterbury regions.
