Welcome to Dementia Alliance International (DAI)

DAI is a 501c3 registered charity. It is an organization of, by, and for people with dementia, and whereby membership is free and open to people with dementia of any type and from any country.

On September 14/15, 2021, we updated our by-laws with a revised membership criteria:


Eligibility for membership: Request for membership shall be open to any person living with dementia that supports the Vision and Mission of the organization.

Membership of Dementia Alliance International is free and is open and exclusive to anyone with a medical diagnosis of any type of dementia – Mild or Major Neurodegenerative Disorder.

Membership is granted after the completion and receipt of the electronically submitted on-line request or a written membership request provided to an active member.

Membership may be denied or revoked at any time if it is determined that an individual presents potential risk to others in the organization or to the overall health and wellbeing of the organization itself and the people it serves.

This includes but is not limited to breaches of the member Code of Conduct, and physical and mental hazards such as violence, anxiety and relived trauma (this may include revoking or denying membership of registered sex offenders). A majority vote of the Board is required for denial or revocation of membership.

So, if you are a person with a diagnosis of dementia who would like to:

Be part of a global community of others with dementia where members support and encourage each other to live well with dementia

Join others in advocating against the stigma, isolation and discrimination of dementia.
