Are your scones the lightest and your tea the most fragrant? If you answered yes, Alzheim- ers Auckland general manager Bonnie Robinson wants you to put your talent to a good cause. The charity is looking for people to help fend off a looming dementia crisis by holding a Cuppa for a Cause to raise money to help people living in the com- munity with dementia, and their carers. Alzheimers Auckland provides free high quality services to all people affected by dementia in the Auckland region, but financial support for care in the community is limited and an injection of money is needed from the govern- ment and the public. Thirty-three people a day are diagnosed with dementia in New Zealand, Ms Robinson says. In Auckland right now there are 14,500 people with some form of the disease and that means seven to eight other people s lives are impacted as well. People with Alzheimer s disease can forget how to do even the sim- plest things, like making a cup of tea or brushing their teeth. This year s Budget announced $44 million will be channelled into more residential care beds for people with dementia and respite relief for carers, which Ms Robinson says is good news. But it is community care and support that will have the biggest impact on the level of need for both of these services, she says. Sixty to 70 percent of people with dementia are living in the community at home or being cared for by a family member, she says. Alzheimers Auckland helps to keep people with dementia at home safer and healthier by sup- porting the family carers in this difficult role.
