Dementia is a group of conditions that affect how well our brains work. The most common form is Alzheimer’s Disease.
While symptoms of dementia commonly include changes in memory, thinking, behaviour, personality and emotions, it’s different for everyone. These changes affect a person’s ability to perform everyday tasks and interfere with their everyday lives. Although more common in people over 65, younger people do get dementia.
There are things you can do to reduce the risk of dementia and to identify possible warning signs. With help and support, people can live well with dementia.
Alzheimers NZ represents people affected by dementia. You can help to raise awareness of dementia by spreading the word, sharing our campaign resources and taking part in events.
