Our global dementia charter

We are committed to shaping global dementia care and having people living with dementia lead happier lives, for as long as they can.

As the largest international provider of specialist dementia care, and the only international federation of Alzheimer associations and global voice on dementia, Bupa and the ADI intend to revolutionise care and to campaign to ensure people living with dementia live well, and that their family and friends are properly supported.

That is why we have joined forces to outline, for the first time, what we believe are the rights of people living with dementia, wherever they are in the world. Our joint Global Dementia Charter, 'I can live well with dementia', has been written for, and endorsed by, people living with the condition.

Everyone, everywhere, can and must do their bit. That is why our Charter is supported by ‘enablers’ – a list of actions and accountabilities that outline what families, friends, carers, healthcare professionals, commissioners or purchasers of care, providers, society and governments can do to improve care and support in their country.

We are committed to shaping global dementia care and having people living with dementia lead happier lives, for as long as they can. That is our vision. This is our purpose.
