CEAFA and Alzheimer’s Disease

The Spanish Alzheimer’s Disease Confederation (CEAFA, Spanish acronym) is a national non-profit organization that works to improve the quality of life of people with Alzheimer’s disease and their families. CEAFA represents about 300 local associations and 200,000 families and maintains an associative network with over 5,000 volunteers and over 3,000 workers who care for people affected by Alzheimer’s disease and their family caregivers. CEAFA supports research in the field of Alzheimer’s disease, caregivers, and inclusion, and works with the Ministry of Health and Social Policy in Spain to share their knowledge and experience to help with the emergence of national plans and Alzheimer’s disease policies. To help support people with Alzheimer’s disease, CEAFA has created a guide “Products recommended by CEAFA” to analyze and assess the quality and usefulness of products that may be of interest to the Alzheimer community. Finally, CEAFA shares news about the local associations they represent and about Alzheimer’s disease and related dementias; provides news, opinions, and resources for people with Alzheimer’s disease thru their blog; collects publications of interest to all the groups that make up CEAFA; and compiles interviews of CEAFA’s main representatives where they contribute the association’s knowledge and experience of Alzheimer’s disease.
