alzheimer_europe_logoThe annual conferences of AE bring together all types of people who are affected by dementia, by living with the disease, caring for someone with the disease or working in the field of dementia, all having the opportunity to share and exchange their experience and knowledge of the disease. Speakers from different European Member States and further afield, share the different approaches and developments from their countries.

This year’s conference will be held under the motto “Care today, cure tomorrow” and will focus on the exciting research aiming at finding better treatments and interventions to prevent or delay the onset of dementia, whilst at the same time providing concrete solutions to improve the quality of life, support and care of people currently living with the condition.
