ALZHEIMER ASSOCIATION

DESCRIPTION INSTITUTION

Alzheimer Portugal is the only organization in Portugal, nationwide, specifically constituted with the objective of promoting the quality of life of People with Dementia and their family members and caregivers, with the vision of a society that integrates People with Dementia and truly recognizes your Rights.

One of our pillars of action is direct help for people with Alzheimer's disease or other forms of dementia, as well as their caregivers. We also aim to increase knowledge, inform and raise the population's awareness of the importance of reducing the risk of developing dementia, the warning signs of Alzheimer's Disease and, above all, the importance of timely diagnosis.

HOW WOULD YOU USE THE SUPPORT?

The money raised will go to the «Support in Incontinence» Program. The «Support in Incontinence» Program is a national project integrated in the «Help Plan» of Alzheimer Portugal, which offers support to our members to obtain materials for incontinence, through an application.
