Look after your brain at every age – important message for whānau at Fieldays Post Cover Image

What you do now affects how you age. That’s the message we’re sharing alongside Dementia NZ at Fieldays this year – and we’re delighted to be back!

The event will be held from Wednesday 12 June to Saturday 15 June at Mystery Creek, Hamilton. This is the Southern Hemisphere’s largest agricultural event, with thousands expected to attend.

The joint Alzheimers NZ and Dementia NZ stand will be part of the Hauora Taiwhenua Health and Wellbeing Hub, supported by Mobile Health.

We’ll be alongside organisations like the Neurological Foundation and the Brain Health Research Centre – stop by and say kia ora!

Alzheimers NZ Chief Executive Catherine Hall and Dementia NZ Chief Executive Cathy Cooney say this is one way we can educate whānau in rural areas who may struggle to access information and support.

“People and whānau can really make a difference by looking after their brain health at any age. We’ll be busting the myths around dementia mate wareware and we’re looking forward to finding out how much people already know!”

Fieldays will be a great opportunity for people to learn how to take better care of their health and wellbeing.

There will be different health checks available in the wider hub to encourage people to take charge of their health (like blood pressure tests).

You can buy tickets to attend the event online and we hope to see you there!

If you or anyone you know needs more support, reach out to your local Alzheimers or dementia organisation.
