We need to talk, but also stand on each other's shoes!
A dementia diagnosis today is a major challenge for the person experiencing it, for the physician providing care, for the researcher studying effective treatments, for family associations and healthcare systems exploring innovative care solutions, and for all of us as a society, since the incidence of cases is escalating and any one of us could be tomorrow's caregivers.

The aging population and new social structures are transforming dementia care models globally.

Those directly affected want an earlier diagnosis, more time to decide how to be cared for, and more treatment options.

All of us as a community need to adapt to improve quality of life, independence and inclusion, and that starts by talking about the issue in a broad and open way.

About us
  • Fernando Aguzzoli-Peres
    "I was a teenager when I dropped out of college and work to take care of my grandmother with Alzheimer's. Since then, I have launched books and YouTube channels telling the world about our adventures together. She changed my life, now I want to change other families experience too!"
  • Dr Clara Dominguez Vivero
    "I have been working with dementia patients in Compostela for years now, but my focus remains the same: develop non-pharmacological interventions for patients and support for families. Without this comprehensive approach, it is very unlikely to provide the assistance that is needed."
  • Gustavo San Martin
    "After being diagnosed with multiple sclerosis, my goal has been to make life easier for people living with a chronic disease. To be able to hold an event with this purpose is special not only considering my personal challenge, but for combining my grandmother's diagnosis, Alzheimer's, and her strong roots from Galicia."
