To our valued clients and community,

As a result of the current COVID-19 community case and National Level 4 Lockdown, the Alzheimers Otago team will continue to provide you with as much support and access to services as possible in a safe and appropriate manner.

Older people and people with underlying health conditions, including Dementia, are at increased risk of serious complications if they contract COVID-19. Therefore, we want to do our upmost to stop the spread of the condition.

Alzheimers Otago have decided that, for now, we will suspend all face-to-face services.

This means that our support groups, coffee groups, CST programs and home visits will all be suspended until we are confident it is safe to resume face to face contact. We also ask that you call us rather than popping into our office.

We aren’t going anywhere though! Our support for carers will be delivered over the phone and we are looking into other ways we can offer CST activities.

We are only a phone call away! If you have any questions or need our support please do not hesitate to call, we would love to hear from you.
