Join us for an event

We hold a number of awareness raising and fundraising events throughout the year.

Local Alzheimers organisations also run fundraising events, as well as regularly scheduled support groups, for carers and for those with dementia. If you would like to find out more about where to go for help and support, contact your local Alzheimers organisation.

We also sometimes promote events being held by other organisations or individuals. If you would like to add your event to our calendar, please contact us on admin@alzheimers.org.nz.
