The Alzheimer's Australia 15th national conference was held in Hobart, Tasmania over four days commencing 14 May 2013.

Created on ceramic tiles, these memories were displayed at the conference and portrayed the meaning of dementia to each of the artists.

The presentations and workshops at this year's conference addressed one of the seven sub-themes, which included:

With over 800 delegates registered, the conference was well attended. A particular conference highlight was the presentation given by Professor Tony Broe, who reported on the findings from the Koori growing old well study. The inclusion of this presentation in the conference program complemented the HealthInfoNet café held at the conference, with many delegates showing great interest in the occurrence of dementia among Indigenous Australians.
