Making dementia a priority on World Alzheimer's Day

According to the World Health Organisation (WHO), dementia is the next big health and social crisis the world will have to face after COVID-19, with numbers set to soar in the coming years. Dementia NZ is urging the government to make dementia a national health priority now as it is predicted a staggering 100,000 Kiwis will be affected by dementia in ten years’ time (2030).
