Abstract

International Longevity Centers (ILC-GA) are promoting healthy and active aging. Dementia is a severe and widespread health problem in Europe, with 6.4 Million patients. Two European health initiatives call to address the special needs of dementia patients, their families, and caregivers, while ensuring the sustainability of health and social security systems: The 2011 European Initiative which calls to see dementia a health priority and urges Member States to develop appropriate national plans, and the 2015 European Council’s conclusions on « Supporting people living with dementia: improving care policies and practices ». The role of prevention, health promotion, risk reduction and early detection, as well as the promotion of the rights of dementia people, and intensification of research are clearly stated in these initiatives. Relevant policies and interventions in France, the Netherlands, Czech Republic, UK and Israel will be reviewed.
