New Zealand - Wear Purple for World Alzheimer's Day

Every 3 seconds, someone in the world develops dementia. Here in New Zealand, 4 out of 5 Kiwis are affected by dementia.

The impact of dementia on Kiwi families/whānau is growing each year, and affects people of all ages.

Help raise awareness of dementia by donning your best purple threads on Friday 21st September, which is World Alzheimers Day.

Help us spread the word! We have some great digital resources to share on social media which can be downloaded from our website.

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.
