We offer counselling and support in English, Zulu and Afrikaans. We also have resource lists available of nursing homes in KZN, doctors with a special interest in dementia and care giving agencies.
Support groups for the carers of people suffering from dementia
Support groups provide a safe environment for spouses or caregivers to learn from and support each other. We have 16 support groups across the province, these groups are run on a monthly basis.
Dementia training courses
We facilitate one, two and four day ‘Caring for the person with Dementia’ training courses in English and Zulu.
Community development outreach
Our two Community workers visit people living with dementia and their families to offer support and provide education. They also create awareness of dementia by giving awareness talks at schools, church groups, and clinics.
We create awareness of dementia by giving talks and presentations to any organisation requesting information on dementia. We also organise special events during September to highlight World Alzheimer’s Day which is celebrated each year on the 21st of September.
