Dementia Talks

About this event

Getting a diagnosis and planning for the future.

The process of getting a diagnosis of dementia can be distressing, complex and confronting. It is hard to know where to start and there are often challenges along the way. What is dementia and what does it mean? Who do I ask for help when the GP isn’t proactive? What questions do I ask and when?

This ‘Dementia Talks’, Getting a Diagnosis and Planning for the Future, will empower you with the tools you need to navigate your way through this process.

Experts in the field will share on topics that include:

  • Identifying early signs and symptoms of dementia
  • The difference between depression, delirium, medical conditions, Mild Cognitive Impairment and Mild Dementia
  • Barriers to getting a diagnosis
  • How is the diagnosis made? What does a cognitive test and CT scan tell us? What does functional decline mean?
  • Arranging Enduring Power of Attorney
  • Preparing to bank safely
  • Advanced Care Planning
  • Safety to continue driving

Join us for an informative afternoon either in person or online via zoom.

*if you are caring for someone living with dementia and they'd like to attend with you. Please email events@dementiaauckland.org.nz to book their seat.
