Global Dementia Charter

In April 2013 Alzheimer's Disease International and international healthcare company Bupa launched a joint Global Dementia Charter, ‘I can live well with dementia’. 

The Charter outlines the rights that people living with dementia around the world should be able to expect to allow them to live well.

The Charter marks another step in the call for governments worldwide to develop national dementia plans to protect the rights of people with dementia and their carers.

The Charter is supported by ‘enablers’, a list of actions and accountabilities that outlines what families, friends, carers, healthcare professionals, commissioners or purchasers of care, healthcare providers, society and governments can do to improve dementia care and support in their country, alongside the development of a national dementia planning.
