The role of Alzheimer associations

Alzheimer associations bring people with Alzheimer's disease and other dementias, their carers and family members, health and social care professionals, researchers, scientists and politicians together through shared concern for people with dementia. These associations are dedicated to providing support to people with dementia and their carers through:

  • Practical and emotional help such as help lines and support groups
  • Information and advice
  • Advocacy to governments
  • Training for carers and professionals

More established associations also provide services and undertake research.
