World Alzheimer's Month

September: World Alzheimer's Month

World Alzheimer's Month is the international campaign by Alzheimer's Disease International (ADI) every September to raise awareness and challenge the stigma that surrounds dementia. World Alzheimer's Day is on 21 September each year. 

Over 60,000 Kiwis are living with Dementia today, and that number is expected to triple by 2050. The impact of World Alzheimer's Month is growing, but the stigmatisation and misinformation that surrounds dementia remains a global problem that requires global action.

Our Manager, Darral Campbell, recently spoke to Radio Live about Dementia and what we're doing to support those affected. Click here to listen to the interview.
