What is EFID?

A group of European Foundations, composed of The Fondation Médéric Alzheimer, the King Baudouin Foundation, the Fondazione Compagnia di San Paolo, the Robert Bosch Stiftung and Porticus is convinced that the community approach has to be developed to tackle the challenges linked to dementia.

Communities are the places where citizens, policy-makers and civil society can join forces with people with dementia to create sustainable environments and promote active citizenship.

EFID’s mission is to improve the lives of people with dementia by enabling a dementia-friendly and inclusive environments in communities across Europe.

Dementia is one of the most frequently occurring conditions affecting old age, and remains one of the most important challenges in European society. To live well with dementia communities should support people with dementia and see in them an opportunity for society rather than a burden. This raises enormous challenges for our ageing societies.
