The European Foundations’ Initiative on Dementia (EFID)

Dementia is one of the most frequently occurring diseases affecting old age, and remains one of the most important challenges in European society. To live well with dementia, communities must accept and support people with the condition, and facilitate the expression of their remaining abilities. This raises enormous challenges for our ageing societies.

The European Foundations’ Initiative on Dementia (EFID) is a group of European foundations convinced that the community approach has to be developed in tackling the challenges linked to dementia. This publication, supported by the Robert Bosch Stiftung provides insight into living with dementia in a community context. It provides new perspectives and proposes a necessary shift in mind-set that requires communities to stay connected with all citizens with dementia.
