The full programme – including Associate Minister for Health Hon Casey Costello – is available.

This is the third event in the one-day series and will continue to focus on our three kaupapa of the Dementia Mate Wareware Action Plan, research and human rights and the lived experience of dementia mate wareware.

People and their whānau living with dementia mate wareware, health professionals, policy and decision makers, care workers, educators and researchers and managers of healthcare sectors are all encouraged to attend – there will be something for everyone.

Alzheimers NZ Chief Executive Catherine Hall says there will be particular interest in the Government’s focus on preparing for the ageing population and addressing the growing and urgent dementia mate wareware challenge from those in attendance.

“Our events are vital to repositioning dementia in the maps, plans and focus of Government, sector leaders and the general public. We’re bringing together the leading minds and voices of the sector alongside those living with dementia mate wareware,” she says.

“Our sector-wide Dementia Mate Wareware Action Plans outlines what we know the solutions are and what needs to change so we can work towards a Dementia Friendly Aotearoa New Zealand.

“While I’m delighted we’ll hear from the Associate Minister and Health New Zealand – Te Whatu Ora on some of the progress under the Plan, there is still more to be done. We do hope you’ll join us to help make sure our voice is heard.”

Please note if you have signed up for the first and/or second event, you will still need to register for this event – you won’t want to miss out!
