Westpac has become New Zealands first dementia-friendly bank, to support the two out of three Kiwis affected with dementia. Take a look at their video that was launched this year and played at our Symposium. http://www.westpac.co.nz/rednews/lifestyle/dementia-and-banking-60000-kiwis-living-with-the-illness-video/
Their aim is to help people with dementia to plan ahead, access financial services and get help to remain independent for as long as possible. Their employees have been trained to help recognise, understand and respond to the needs of customers living with dementia and they've put together resources that they're happy to share with other organisations who want to become dementia friendly too.
