Share your story
The more we can openly talk about dementia mate wareware by sharing our experiences, the more likely we are to encourage others to learn about how they can help, and challenge the stigma associated with dementia.
“This is why I want to share my experiences – if my story helps people be a little more compassionate and understanding, then we’re one step closer to creating a dementia friendly New Zealand.”

Whether you are living with dementia, caring for someone with dementia mate wareware, volunteering or fundraising, we would love to hear from you.
How will my story be used?
Personal stories may be shared on our blog, social media or on our website. Speaking to the media is another powerful way to engage and inspire others and help make dementia mate wareware a public health priority.
Support and guidance is on hand from the Alzheimers NZ team, and we would never consider using any part of your story without asking you first.
People who’ve shared their story often find it a really positive experience and an opportunity to make a real difference for people with dementia mate wareware.
