Symposium 2018: Let's Talk About Dementia
- By Dementia Auckland
Dementia is something that affects so many of us – in fact, research shows that two out of three Kiwis will be affected by dementia in their lifetimes.
And yet, so often, we’re afraid to talk about it. People in the early stages of dementia don’t want to tell others that they have it, and people whose partners or parents are showing signs of dementia may remain in denial about it for some time. Dementia can be so isolating – not least because it’s rare to hear much about it!
The 2018 Dementia Auckland Symposium is being held on Sunday 19 August at Waipuna Hotel & Conference Centre, and with a theme of 'Let's Talk About Dementia', it's sure to be a good one, helping us lift the shame and stigma of dementia so that people can talk more freely about this common condition and the ways it can be managed.
Every year the Symposium is a must for anyone who is affected by dementia in any way, and this year is no exception, with fantastic speakers sharing their expertise and research around dementia.
