New Zealand Dementia Summit

Te Papa, Wellington

This was the first summit held of it’s kind in New Zealand, with a collaboration between New Zealand Dementia Co-operative, Alzheimer’s New Zealand and Carers New Zealand.

The summit was workshop style with delegates pre-seated at tables, to ensure groups had a wide range of voices and experiences at each table. Each table had a scribe and facilitator which fed-back to the wider audience of their tables thoughts, insights, on questions posed by the Summit facilitator.

The goal was to identify any gaps and explore better was to deliver better outcomes for people with dementia which is now being implemented throughout New Zealand.
