“The number of people affected by dementia will have almost doubled by 2050. This can be seen as a shocking development, while the number of caregivers is decreasing. Today, hardly any of us know what it means to be affected – neither as patients nor as caregivers. But the statistics show that this will change very quickly. This makes it all the more important to quickly raise awareness of the issue of dementia and care for those affected. Interdisciplinary conferences such as the Alps Adria Academy Conference on Dementia are particularly important and necessary to create a suitable framework for everyone. Only by working together and across disciplines will we be able to improve the quality of life of those affected – patients and their families”
