The aged residential care programme is profiling some of the great work done in the sector. This video by Attitude explores a tikanga approach to working with Māori communities dealing with dementia.

Misdiagnosis of dementia among Māori is the focus of a three-year field study by Dr. Margaret Dudley, with the aim of developing more effective assessment tools and care for Māori.

This documentary explores what dementia looks like in the lives of everyday Māori. One whānau shares their story of coping and caring for their mother with early onset dementia, and there’s a visit to a care unit using te reo, whakpapapa and waiata to enhance the well-being of Māori with dementia.
