Mission

Dementia Alliance International (DAI) is the first global group, of,by and for people with dementia, advocating for the voice and needs of people with dementia. DAI was established in January 2014 to promote education and awareness about dementia, in order to eradicate stigma and discrimination, and to improve the quality of the lives of people with dementia. The aim is to bring the community composed of those with dementia together as one strong voice to urge the government, private sector, and medical professionals to listen to our concerns and take action to address this urgent global crisis. It is our firm belief that working together, we will identify concrete action for implementation with the international community, and in the process, ensure our human rights are being fully met.

Our Mission is to:

·         Self advocate, and support other people with dementia to do the same

·         Act as a local and national resource by providing support to people with dementia and their families

·         Educate professionals and the community regarding AD and other dementias

·         Provide international support and networking opportunities for people with dementia

·         Promote fundraising for attendance at conferences
