A diagnosis of dementia deeply affects each and every one it touches.

Dementia is a challenge to one’s identity, it may impact the way others see us and the way we see ourselves. Many of those living with dementia feel denied of their abilities to participate within the community as they have before their diagnosis, for fear of the unknown as their condition progresses.

Dementia New Zealand, have challenged themselves to create and awareness of the condition, and educate and encourage our New Zealand community to see those with dementia as the person and not the diagnosis.  In doing so, there is understanding that there are practical steps that can be taken to considerately identify those with dementia in a community situation.

Dementia New Zealand in collaboration with The Mint Republic, have created a practical unisex bracelet that can be worn, and used to help identify those affected by dementia in the community, should the need arise.  Dementia New Zealand have undertaken an education campaign, coupled with the launch of the bracelet, which educates members of the wider community , such as police, ambulance, medical, transportation staff, and staff highly visited areas such as shopping destinations and recreational spaces, which not only highlights this unique identifying tool, but brings about awareness and acceptance of dementia in real life.
