Benefits of membership

Through ADI membership, associations are entitled to a number of benefits, including one-to-one support and access to a global network of Alzheimer and dementia associations.

ADI currently has 105 member associations around the world. 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.

When joining ADI, member associations have access to a number of exciting benefits:

  • The opportunity to be a part of a unique global network of Alzheimer and dementia associations
  • The opportunity to share best practice and exchange information
  • One-to-one support from the ADI team and other associations in ADI’s network
  • The opportunity to participate in Alzheimer University training programmes
  • The option to participate in ADI’s conference workshops for further training
  • The ability to apply to participate in ADI’s Twinning Programme
  • The co-ordination of World Alzheimer’s Month
  • Eligibility to apply for travel bursaries for ADI conferences and 1 free registration for ADI’s global conference
  • Access to ADI materials including quarterly e-newsletters, monthly updates, member news emails, information booklets and factsheets on dementia care and research, and ADI’s World Alzheimer Report
  • Advocating to make dementia a global health priority and encouraging governments to make dementia a national health priority
  • Links to the 10/66 Dementia Research Group and ADI’s Medical and Scientific Advisory Panel (MSAP)
  • The opportunity to be a stakeholder in ADI’s governance.

The full list of benefits is outlined in the Benefits of ADI Membership document (English ; Spanish).
