The number of people with dementia is growing fast and services are just not keeping up with the need.

This five year National Dementia Plan is the result of a collaboration between Alzheimers NZ, the New Zealand Dementia Cooperative and Dementia New Zealand, with the voices and input of over 300 individuals and groups.

The plan focuses on the most urgent actions to better support people living with dementia.

In 2020, Labour made a pre-election promise to ‘work with the (dementia) sector to implement the Dementia Action Plan’. We now need government to take that next step to fund and implement the Plan.
