🔊 LISTEN TO THIS

Dementia Alliance International is today launching the first edition of our conference guidelines based on feedback from people with dementia and family care partners since 2012.

Of course, it was not possible to receive feedback from the more than 47 million people currently diagnosed with dementia, but we did engage with hundreds of people from more than 12 countries.

Your feedback is important, and if you have ways in which the next edition of this document could be improved, we would appreciate hearing from you.

“Because members of Dementia Alliance International (DAI) have a unique perspective on conferences we decided to assemble responses from post-event informal email surveys of the past four years to see how people with demen a and care partners feel about the access, support, and enablement provided at professional mee ngs of Alzheimer’s Disease Interna onal (ADI) and other conferences or events.

In other words, we asked if such events are dementia friendly, accessible, and accommoda ng for people of all ages and disabilities.”
