The Benefits Of Speech-Language Therapy For Individuals With Dementia

31st International Conference of ADI (Alzheimer's Disease International)

Alzheimer's Disease International (ADI) believes that the key to winning the fight against dementia lies in a unique combination of Global Solutions and local knowledge. As such, it works locally, by empowering Alzheimer associations to promote and offer care and support for people with dementia and their carers, while working globally to focus attention on dementia.

ADI holds an international conference each year, working with different member Alzheimer associations around the world. The conference is a unique opportunity to bring together everyone with an interest in dementia - staff and volunteers of Alzheimer associations, people living with dementia, family members, clinicians, care professionals and scientists - to share and learn from one another.
