Awareness-building programme

In 2012, Foundation Compassion Alzheimer Bulgaria was among the winners of the European Foundations’ Initiative on Dementia (EFID) Living well with Dementia in the Community awards. Their involvement in Alzheimer’s Disease International’s Twinning Programme, which sees two national Alzheimer associations partnered for mutual benefit, has seen the development of a robust awareness-building programme. The programme, which aims to fight the prejudice and exclusion experienced by people with dementia, has enabled the creation of self-help groups, an Alzheimer’s Café and annual public awareness campaigns.
