Alzheimers Waikato

Alzheimers Waikato received $2,539 to purchase two laptops for use in education sessions aimed at building awareness around the debilitating neurological disorder.

The sessions help primary caregivers and whanau gain an understanding of the illness and learn strategies to cope with their loved one’s changing behaviour, train health professionals and educate the wider community.

The new laptops are an essential education tool that will enable the organisation to spread the word further, foster an understanding of dementia and alert people to the conditions so they can recognise the early signs and symptoms of the illness.
