Our members

ADI is made up of 102 members from around the world, each a non-profit organisation that works to support people affected by dementia, as well as their carers and families.

Alzheimer associations are non-profit organisations which work to support people affected by dementia. They also serve to bring together carers and family members, health and social care professionals, researchers, scientists and politicians through shared concern for people with dementia. 

These associations are dedicated to providing support to people with dementia and their carers through:

  • Practical and emotional help such as helplines and support groups
  • Information and advice
  • Advocacy to governments
  • Training for carers and professionals

More established associations also provide services and undertake research.

There can only be one ADI member per country, which is the national Alzheimer association for people with dementia and their families registered as a not-for-profit organisation, who have gone through ADI’s 2-year Membership Development Programme and meet certain membership criteria.

ADI currently has 102 member associations around the world.

Individuals with a diagnosis of dementia can also join our partner Dementia Alliance International, an independent self-advocacy organisation of people with dementia.

Finding help

ADI member associations and associations on our Membership Development Programme provide information and support and can advise you of any services available in your area, as well as answer any specific questions you may have.
