We at Aktion Demenz caught that ball that had been passed to us, and since 2006, we have worked towards making ‘ dementia and the commu- nity ’ a subject matter for discussion in communities and have sought to nurture a willingness to act on these discussions. This book is intended to showcase the results of the efforts made by initiatives across the country, and to connect them to their various practical and theoretical contexts and implications. The dementia-friendly community is like a pebble that, once thrown into the

We aimed at putting together scientists, end-users, civil society, public administrations and companies in order to improve the competitiveness of the European Union regarding the promotion of research and innovative products for longer and healthier lives. Working on this objective, we found Brian and Maria completely determined to

For example, a volunteer turned out to be the deputy mayor of her village, while others as- serted that they were long-term party members of the SPD, the German So- cial Democratic Party.
