Alzheimer's Disease International gives awards to recognise excellence and achievement in the field we work in, in particular aiming to give awards for areas and accomplishments which may otherwise not be recognised.

The ADI Award - This award is presented to an individual or organisation who has made an extraordinary contribution towards increasing awareness of dementia and encouraging policy initiatives and improvements in the quality of life of people with dementia and their carers.

ADI-Home Instead Family Carer of the Year Award - This award recognises the work of unpaid family carers who help improve the quality of life for the people they care for. It seeks to acknowledge and celebrate the dedication that carers show to their local community or society. 

MetLife-ADI Awards for Dementia Care Education - With the support of the MetLife Foundation, these awards recognised successful Alzheimer association projects around the world that promoted better dementia care through providing training or education programmes.

Alzheimer's Awards for psychosocial interventions - For four years, the Fondation Médéric Alzheimer and ADI ran the Alzheimer's Awards for evidence-based psychosocial interventions for people with dementia and their carers.
