Dementia Today: Diverse Communities Collective Action
Alzheimers NZ Biennial Conference and 19th Asia Pacific Regional Conference of Alzheimer’s Disease International
Dementia is one of the greatest healthcare challenges of our time, in New Zealand and around the world. Already, 60,000 Kiwis are living with dementia. Due to an ageing population, this number is expected to almost triple by 2050, to 154,000.
Top flight speakers from New Zealand and overseas will share the latest research, evidence, learnings and insights, and discuss how we can address this challenge.
With real life case studies, and an emphasis on what works, this conference has practical relevance to the real world of people affected by dementia, policy makers, service providers, health and care professionals, researchers and NGOs.
Alzheimers NZ is working towards a dementia-friendly New Zealand. We support people affected by dementia at a national level by raising awareness of dementia, providing information, advocating for high quality services, and promoting research about prevention, treatment, cure and care of people affected by dementia.
We support a federation of 21 local Alzheimers NZ organisations throughout New Zealand, each of which is a member of Alzheimers NZ.
