"Our vision is a world without dementia"
The Swedish Alzheimer’s Foundation’s vision is a society where we can cure and prevent dementia. We must be innovative and at the forefront of our work to stop Alzheimer’s disease.
– Liselotte Jansson, Secretary General at the Swedish Alzheimer’s Foundation.
This is Alzheimerfonden
The Swedish Alzheimer’s Foundation (Alzheimerfonden) was established in 1988 and primarily focuses on raising money for research and information about Alzheimer’s and other dementias. In recent years we have distributed over 7,5 million dollars to Swedish research and selected healthcare development projects. The Swedish Alzheimer’s Foundation is the largest provider of Alzheimer’s research grants in Sweden, which is at the forefront of the field.
The Swedish Alzheimer’s Foundation regularly hosts a series of events, lectures, sportive, and culture, to include caregivers and other stakeholders to join the fight against Alzheimer’s. One particularly important project is Alzheimer’s Game Over, hosted by European Speedrunner Assembly, where gamers from around the world gather in Malmö to give their support on Twitch.tv and raise money for The Swedish Alzheimer’s Foundation.
We are a core team of dedicated employees based in Stockholm with support from our colleagues in the south of Sweden. Together we work hard to deliver the research funding necessary to beat this deadly disease. We all have a connection to Alzheimer’s and know first hand what it means to be affected.
”I believe that we now are on the verge of several major breakthroughs to slow down the progression of Alzheimer’s disease. That brings hope to millions around the world” /Liselotte Jansson, Secretary General at the Swedish Alzheimer’s Foundation.
