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.”
