Malta Dementia Society
The Malta Dementia Society is a non-governmental and a not-for-profit organisation for persons with dementia, their carers, families and friends. The society brings together healthcare professionals and interested persons to improve the knowledge about dementia and to increase public awareness of the condition.
The Malta Dementia Society was established in September 2004 on the occasion of World Alzheimer's Day™ (Alzheimer's Disease International - www.alz.co.uk ), an event that is celebrated worldwide.
Aims of the Society
The society promotes the best methods of care, education and treatment of persons with dementia and related disorders throughout the Maltese Islands and elsewhere.
This is achieved by providing literature to disseminate knowledge about dementia to patients, carers and the public in general. The society organizes talks for family members,carers and the general public; hands on activities and social events for people with dementia; fundraising and also the annual walk for Alzheimer’s in September. Through its work, the society helps establish good relations with the general public and other providers of services to persons with dementia and influences policy making.
