Our Advocacy

Towards a dementia-friendly New Zealand

One of Alzheimers New Zealand's core goals is to create a dementia-friendly New Zealand, a nation that caters well for the many thousands of people who are - and who will be affected by dementia.

As part of working towards this goal, we focus on four key streams of work:

  • Strengthening the voice of people affected by dementia
  • Supporting people affected by dementia to live well
  • Lifting the quality of care and support
  • Building resources, readiness and capability

At Alzheimers New Zealand, we advocate nationally on behalf of people affected by dementia - that's two out of three New Zealander's, and many thousands more will develop the condition over the next 30 years.
