 Leben mit Demenz – Alzheimergesellschaft Kreis Minden – Lübbecke e.V

Project description:

In the past decade, various means of support have been established for people with dementia and their families in the region (e.g. specialized dementia service centres, respite care, day care, carer support groups). However, until this project was set up, no programmes existed explicitly for people in the early stages of dementia. The project consists of bi-weekly support groups, a sports programme and a monthly activity programme. In order to facilitate participation by those with dementia, a network of volunteers has been created. All the volunteers have either a professional background in dementia care or have been trained specifically for the task. The jury selected this project for an award because it demonstrates an innovative approach in offering bi-weekly support and a sports programme for people in early-stage dementia. This kind of support programme with a network of volunteers is a very good example how we can improve the quality of life of people with dementia.

Project description:

Learning with and from each other in order to deal with each other is what some of the senior experts intended for this project. This guiding principle set out to strengthen the various networks in the town of Enger and to offer young and elderly people the possibility of taking part in social development. This project enables people with dementia to actively participate in life and to come into contact with people without dementia. Such a project was only possible in the town of Enger with the support of the local community, its shopkeepers and the local authority. Dementia brings with it isolation and rejection. To remedy this, Generationen Treff Enger offers people with dementia the opportunity to meet with other members of the town through a range of activities. This initiative, whichappears so simple, draws its success from the involvement of many actors. It also stimulates profound changes in the way people with dementia are regarded

 HEKLA Local police force

Project description:

This project is a bottom-up initiative that started in 2006 with the aim of dealing better with people with dementia who get lost in the community. The local police service covering 5 local authority areas (HEKLA) took responsibility for the project and brought together all the relevant community-based parties, including nursing homes and hospitals. They signed a joint protocol that aims to provide an efficient procedure for dealing with disappearances of people with dementia and youngsters. As time is crucial in finding and returning these vulnerable people safely, the partners agreed to actively support professional communication with the local police service. This involves providing fast access to a well-documented file on the missing person, including personal details and information about the ‘last point seen’. Since the implementation of these optimized communication procedures, missing people are now located in less than 2 hours on average. The project has already been adopted by eight other local police services in Belgium.

Project description:

Bistrot Mémoire creates a special environment where people with dementia are able to express themselves whilst still being part of the community. The Jury was convinced by the approach and the mission of the project as well as by the success of the concept. It has spread rapidly throughout France without losing any of the project’s original quality or its mission. The first Bistrot Mémoire was set up in Rennes in January 2004. Since then, the concept has been implemented in a further 41 communities in France. The idea was jointly developed by a group of institutions and volunteers. Later, a board of governors was appointed which included people with dementia as well as carers. The Bistrot Mémoire is located in a popular bistrot in the city and welcomes people with dementia and their carers once a week. In Rennes, some 25 people attend each week, including both professionals and volunteers. The Bistrot Mémoire is a place where people share feelings and experience and develop social ties. It is not an information centre, even though information is given. The mission is to provide a pleasant location for people with dementia, develop tolerance, change the public’s views about dementia, support carers, prevent crises in the family network and change professional practice.

Alzal House is a community day-care home for people with Alzheimer’s disease and their families, situated in Lamezia Terme, Calabria, in the very south of Italy. It opened in 2002 as the first adult care home in Lamezia Terme and today offers a wide range of activities such as handicrafts, self-management activities, organized day trips and short vacations, as well as group meetings and support for families. The daily running of Alzal House is purposely shared with families, young civil service volunteers and students to encourage the dissemination of good social practices and assistance within the community. Encouraging the participation of people from all age groups fosters effective intergenerational communication – between young people, adults and the elderly – and narrows the generation gap, whilst ensuring stronger integration of the patient in the community.

Prix EFID "Valoriser l'expertise des personnes ayant la maladie d’Alzheimer ou une maladie apparentée", 2017


L'EFID a lancé en 2017 un appel à candidatures pour récompenser des initiatives notables qui encouragent une participation significative des personnes vivant avec la maladie d'Alzheimer. Les Fondations de l'EFID annoncent avoir décidé de récompenser 12 initiatives visant à valoriser l'expertise des personnes ayant ces maladies dans 10 pays européens, en signe de reconnaissance de leur travail en matière de respect de l'autonomie, de la dignité et du droit à l'autodétermination des personnes avec démence.

Les douze organisations ont été sélectionnées par un jury indépendant, et ont étè mises à l'honneur lors de la cérémonie de remise des prix à Sofia en janvier 2018 dans le cadre de la présidence bulgare du conseil de l’Union européenne.
