The 24th Annual Conference for Alzheimer Europe put people with dementia in the driving seat. Deservedly so.

“The relative failure of the medical model in addressing the needs of people with dementia and caregivers was a pervasive theme throughout the whole conference.”

“Key to the event will be the signing of the Glasgow Declaration: a commitment to promoting the rights, dignity and autonomy of people living with dementia across Europe, as guaranteed in the European Convention of Human Rights and the Universal Declaration of Human Rights.”
