Fondation Médéric Alzheimer schedules special symposium on psychosocial interventions at this year's Alzheimer Europe Conference and invites input to survey on same topic


Psychosocial interventions, also called non-drug or non-pharmacological interventions, are essential to maintaining and/or improving cognitive, psychological, social and physical functioning and quality-of-life of people with dementia. Since 2011, the Fondation Médéric Alzheimer has been conducting surveys among French facilities for people with dementia and family caregivers, in order to provide an overview of the implementation of psychosocial interventions, among other things. The Fondation will organise its first symposium at the 33rd Alzheimer Europe Conference, with the presence of INTERDEM members, on Tuesday 17 October 2023 from 5.30pm to 6.30pm.

The aim will be to better understand how psychosocial interventions are implemented in Europe and to identify similarities and differences. In order to prepare this symposium, the Fondation Médéric Alzheimer has launched a flash survey on psychosocial interventions in Europe. During the symposium, participants will be invited to answer the survey questions live and the results will be presented and compared with those of the survey. If you are a professional, a person with dementia or a family caregiver, and you are concerned by psychosocial interventions, take a few minutes to complete this flash survey before 15 September 2023:
