Celebrate 10 years of DAI's advocacy at DAI Café Le Brain on January 23/24, 2024, hosted by Alister Robertson and Kate Swaffer. Everyone is welcome to join the festivities and reflect on a decade of progress.

  • Tuesday, January 23, 2024 (USA/CA/UK/EU)

  • Wednesday, January 24, 2024 (AU/NZ/Asia)

At the beginning of each year, we host a virtual cafe to celebrate our birthday, and we invite you to join us. This is your opportunity to have some fun, meet the board, and welcome back the DAI Café Le Brain.

From humble beginnings and big dreams of providing support and global advocacy of, by and for people with dementia, to campaigning for human rights and for dementia to be managed as a disability, alongside providing weekly peer to peer support, we continue to achieve a lot!

You will see old friends and meet new ones. Watch our video below to hear why Wally Cox, and his wife Pat are glad they found DAI, which also partly explains why we continue to be committed to, and glad DAI was founded.

DAI's vision is a world where all people are valued and equally included, including people with dementia and our care partners, and we are looking forward to a new year with you.
