2021 Conference

Alzheimers NZ Conference
18th-19th November 2021, Auckland


Living with dementia: Taking action for a better future
Te noho rangatira me te mate wareware: Te kōkiri kaupapa mō ngā rā e tū mai nei

Over the past couple of months, we have been monitoring closely the rapidly changing situation of Covid-19. As a result, we have now made the difficult decision to postpone the Alzheimers NZ 2020 Conference, which was due to take place in November 2020.

The Conference will now take place on the 18th-19th November 2021.

While we are disappointed that we won’t be able to go ahead with the exciting programme we had planned for this year, the safety and wellbeing of everyone, especially older people and those living with dementia, is very important to us.

Thank you to everyone who has submitted an abstract. We will be back in touch soon.

2018 Conference
Tackling dementia: It's everybody’s business, Mā wai e āwhina te mate wareware - mā tātou katoa

The last Alzheimers NZ Conference took place in October 2018 in Auckland. We were joined by 300 delegates, 30% of which were people living with dementia and care partners, who attended the conference free of charge. The thought provoking conversations that took place over the course of the 3 days demonstrated stronger than ever that it’s up to all of us to do more and better for people living with dementia.

You told us:

“I so enjoyed the conference. It was interesting and often very moving. I spoke to many people who had fascinating stories, valuable insights etc and I learned a lot.”

“I thought the themes for the days were excellent. Loved the focus on the voice of people with dementia.”

“I was enthused by the quality of speakers and the quality of network interactions with a broad sweep of professionals and consumers who I would never normally meet.”

“Well done for such an inclusive and stimulating event.”
