Welcome to the State of California 

Alzheimer's Disease International

Alzheimer's Disease International (ADI) is the international federation of over 75 national Alzheimer's disease associations around the world.  It was founded in 1984 to help establish and strengthen these organizations through the exchange of information, skills, and models of best practice.  ADI works locally by empowering national Alzheimer associations to promote and offer care and support for people with dementia and their caregivers while working globally to focus attention on the epidemic and to campaign for policy change from governments and the World Health Organization.

  • ADI runs the Alzheimer University, a series of practical workshops aimed at helping the staff and volunteers of Alzheimer associations build and strengthen their organizations.
  • ADI holds an annual international conference which is the longest running international conference on dementia.  The conference is a unique multi-disciplinary event which unites people with an interest in dementia from around the world.
  • World Alzheimer's Day, celebrated on September 21 each year, is an opportunity to raise global awareness about dementia and its impact on families and the important work of our members throughout the world.
