DAI seeks to represent, support, and educate others living with the disease, and the wider dementia community. We are an organization that strives to provide a unified voice of strength, advocacy and support in the fight for individual autonomy and improved quality of life for people living with dementia and their care partners.

DAI is a collaboration of like-minded individuals diagnosed with dementia providing a unified voice of strength, advocacy, and support in the fight for individual autonomy for 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.

Summary of relevant work: 
  • Direct advocacy with UN and other Human Rights Organizations
  • Raising awareness of the needs and rights of people with dementia with governments, professionals, researchers and the community as a whole.
  • Weekly support groups and webinars for its 2500 members in 38 countries across all Continents.
  • Newsletters and publications - e.g. on human, rights, dementia-friendly (enabling) communities, conferences and consultations
