A great-grandmother with dementia is fighting for life in hospital after being tasered by police at her nursing home in the NSW Snowy Mountains.

Clare Nowland, 95, was home in Yallambee Lodge in Cooma when staff called NSW Police to the facility on Wednesday.

Ms Nowland, who has lived at the aged care facility for more than five years, was believed to have been carrying a knife when officers tasered her.

She was taken to Cooma Base Hospital where she remains in a critical condition.

Ms Nowland is well-known in the local community, and on her 80th birthday she celebrated by skydiving over Canberra, as reported by the ABC.

Clare Nowland dies in hospital after police officer charged with Tasering her

NSW Police have charged an officer after he allegedly Tasered 95-year-old Clare Nowland, who died in Cooma Hospital on Wednesday, one week after the incident.

Senior Constable Kristian White was charged with recklessly causing grievous bodily harm, assault occasioning actual bodily harm, and common assault after allegedly Tasering the great-grandmother at an aged care facility in southern NSW last week.

He was issued with a future court attendance notice, which means he will remain in the community until appearing before court on July 5.

In a statement, NSW Police said Nowland died around 7pm on Wednesday surrounded by loved ones.
