This site is very much a democratic learning experience, and we need to work together to build the body of information available. Its success depends on people in the dementia community posting information and engaging in discussion. You can to post information in the form of documents, links, video, podcasts and blog commentary on this page. You can also have a dialogue with other people in the sector by setting up a discussion group.
If you have information/document(s) you would like to post about this page, click the button below.

This document contains a list of NZ research that could be categorised under the "Living Well" section of the NZ Framework for Dementia Care. There will be omissions and perhaps some papers that could go elsewhere. Please contribute other research or comment if you think your research is incorrectly included here. Thanks

Speech and Language Therapists at Massey University are currently running a study aimed at keeping conversations going. We are looking for people with dementia and their main communication partner. This could be a spouse, or family member. We will put in place individualised strategies to maintain communication and quality of life. In addition, our Speech and Language Therapy Clinic at the Albany campus also offers one to one or group therapy. Please contact us for further information, or if you have any questions.
