Dementia

This is a condition of gradual loss of memory and other functions of awareness or thinking such as concentration, over time.  There are several types of dementia including Alzheimer’s disease and vascular dementia, which is due to the same sort of illnesses that cause stroke. 

People with dementia and memory problems might be referred to our Day Assessment – Auckland City Memory Service. Please go back to the main page to read more about the Service.
