About Alzheimer’s Disease International (ADI)
Alzheimer’s Disease International (ADI) is the international federation of Alzheimer associations around the world, in official relations with the World Health Organization (WHO). ADI currently has 94 members, each member being the Alzheimer association in their country who support people living with dementia and their families. ADI believes that the key to winning the fight against dementia lies in a unique combination of global solutions and local knowledge. As such, it works locally, by empowering Alzheimer associations to promote and offer care and support for people living with dementia and their carers, whilst working globally to focus attention on dementia. There are over 50 million people estimated to be living with dementia around the world and this number is set to reach 152 million by 2050. ADI’s vision is prevention, care and inclusion today, and cure tomorrow. Visit our website to find out more.
Alzheimer’s Disease Association (ADA, Singapore)
ADA (Singapore) was formed in 1990 because of a growing concern for the needs of persons living with dementia and their caregivers.Through our work, the Association hopes to reduce stigma by increasing awareness and understanding of dementia; enabling and involving persons living with dementia to be integrated and accepted in the community; and leading in the quality of dementia care services for persons living with dementia and their families. Striving towards a dementia inclusive society through our four strategic service pillars;Centre-Based Care, Caregiver Support, Academy and Community Enabling, the Association aims to advocate and inspire the society to regard and respect persons living with dementia as individuals who can still lead purposeful and meaningful lives.
