Alzheimers NZ

World Alzheimers Day

World Alzheimers Month is the international campaign to raise awareness and challenge the stigma that surrounds dementia. September 2018 will mark the 7th World Alzheimers Month. World Alzheimers Day is on 21 September each year.

This year, Friday 21st September, Alzheimers NZ is calling on Kiwis to Wear Purple to raise awareness of dementia in NZ.

It’s simple. Help raise awareness of dementia by donning your best purple threads on World Alzheimers Day!

On the day, be sure to share a photo of your purple outfits and tag your social media photos and posts with #WearPurple and #WorldAlzMonth.

Get involved with World Alzheimers Month!

Wearing purple is just one way you can get involved with September’s World Alzheimers Month campaign. You could also join a Memory Walk, or become a Dementia Friend. Go to to find out more.
