March Charity of the Month
- Dementia Waikato -
Who They Are
Dementia Waikato is a charity that supports people with dementia symptoms to live well at home. Individuals and families throughout the Waikato receive education, information, ongoing support and advice from Dementia Waikato every year to help them to remain as independent as possible.
Living well with dementia means maintaining independence wherever possible, feeling supported to live the best ways you can with the various changes in ability that dementia can bring, and to know that those around you understand what you are experiencing and how to best support you.
What They Do
Dementia Waikato provides help to understand what a diagnosis means and to navigate through the health system. They also provide Carepartner support groups, musical and creative activities for people with dementia and educate them in ways to live well through the impact of changes in the brain. As well as this Dementia Waikato provides advocacy, raises awareness and knowledge about dementia and provides industry education for anyone who works with people with dementia.
How We Are Supporting Them
This month Agora will donate 50 cents from every hot beverage sold to Dementia Waikato.
If you would like to know more about how Dementia Waikato may be able to assist you or your family to live well with dementia please contact them.
They are also always looking for keen volunteers to support their activities and charitable services and would love to hear from you if you are able to help.

Compassion & Community
At Agora deeply value compassion and community, and as our way of showing this we created our Charity of the Month programme. Our heart is to not only raise money for these local charities by giving 50 cents of every hot beverage sold, but also raise their profile and to see people connected who may have need for their services, or who are moved to get involved, volunteer or donate themselves. We see it as a privilege that although we can't help everyone personally we can partner with those are on the ground serving those in need - whether financially, physically, emotionally or socially.
If you are part of a local Hamilton charity or not for profit and would like to be considered to be one of our charities of the month please contact email@example.com for more information.
