Each member is an Alzheimer association in their country that supports people with dementia and their families. ADI works locally by empowering national Alzheimer associations to promote and offer care and support for people with dementia and their caregivers as well as to raise awareness globally on the disease. ADI's vision is an improved quality of life for people with dementia and their families throughout the world. Its main objectives are to raise awareness, to support and strengthen its member associations and to make dementia a global health priority.
