Alzheimer Catalunya has been working face to face with dementia since 1988. Its aim is for the diagnosed person to continue to decide for herself as long as she can and, later on, for her environment to keep her perspective in mind.
From the Foundation, support is offered to people and their caregiver environment through the Person and Family area. The will is to make visible the needs verbalized by the people affected by dementia and its closest environment and to accompany them in the process of the disease.
To carry out the accompaniment, Alzheimer Catalunya offers, from the framework of the ACP (person centered attention), counseling and psychological attention to people living with dementia, and also to their relatives, thus trying to improve the living conditions of these people.
