The Alzheimers New Zealand Charitable Trust was the Foundation Sponsor for the establishment of Brain Research New Zealand’s network of Dementia Prevention Research Clinics throughout New Zealand. There are three clinics located in Auckland, Dunedin & Christchurch. The goal of the Dementia Prevention Research Clinics is to recruit individuals with mild cognitive decline or the early stages of Alzheimer’s disease, and to provide them with thorough assessment and feedback on their condition together with the opportunity to be involved in longitudinal and intervention studies that aim to slow down the onset and/or progression of the disease. Since opening the clinics have successfully trialed and established a template of clinical, cognitive, brain-imaging and blood collection and processing protocols on people who have attended. It is the beginning of a great journey that combines the input of the community, clinicians and brain scientists.
