CEO

Deutsche Alzheimer Gesellschaft e.V. Selbsthilfe Demenz focuses on Family Health & Nutrition and is headquartered in Berlin, Berlin, Germany.

1.5 million people in Germany are suffering from dementia. 24,000 of them are younger than 65 years. Deutsche Alzheimer Gesellschaft fights for better conditions for people living with dementia and their families. We try to increase public awareness and knowledge about dementia. We provide a large number of booklets with practical information. Since 2002 we are running a telephone helpline wich is used by over 5,000 people per year. The 'Alzheimer-Telefon' is available Monday to Friday.

Today's News

RHAPSODY - Research for people with young onset dementia: When dementia strikes at a young age (before the age of 65) it is associated with specific and particularly severe problems for patients, family carers, and healthcare professionals. Young onset dementia has a profound impact on marital relationships and family structures, often involving children. Typically it leads to premature retirement and reduced family income and puts a heavy burden on carers. Nevertheless interventions addressing the specific needs and problems of these people and their carers are currently almost non-existent. Therefore an international, multidisciplinary team of investigators are joining their efforts in the RHAPSODY project (Research to Assess Policies and Strategies for Dementia in the Young). Deutsche Alzheimer Gesellschaft also participates in this project. The aim is to develop an internet-based learning programme supporting people with young onset dementia and their carers.
