Dementia Canterbury supports people with dementia and their family and friends to Live Well With Dementia. We have a number of clients with dementia who live in and around Ashburton who would love someone to visit them and spend time chatting, going for a walk, playing a game, going to a cafe, or any other social activity that you both enjoy. If you are patient, friendly, and reliable, and want to help people with dementia to live well, we'd love to hear from you. Previous experience is not necessary, as training is provided.
