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.
