In the framework of the European Year 2012 and of the EC’s Innovation Union, the Fondation Médéric Alzheimer and ELISAN (The European Local Inclusion and Social Action Network) have launched a call for nominations to award original and relevant projects contributing to improve the daily lives of people with dementia and their relatives.
The Fondation Médéric Alzheimer and ELISAN want to encourage with this initiative a person-centred approach to the disease, focused on the single individual rather than caring about the symptoms.
The overall objective of the "Living with and despite Alzheimer’s disease" call is to promote actions seeking to preserve the place of these patients in the cities, their interaction with other generations, their quality of life, and also to improve the support to their families. In addition, both partners wish to recognize and give value to the role of trained professionals.
The call is directed to municipalities, regions, not for profit or public authorities welcoming or delivering care to citizens with Alzheimer. There will be three awards for the finalists, consisting on one of 7,000 Euros and two of 4,000 Euros.
Update: The winners of the Awards were announced on November 27th in Brussels.

ELISAN was formed in January 2012 with the ambition to raise awareness of local social action and ensure that a better account is taken of the participation of the elected representatives in the implementation of an effective and coherent European social policy. ELISAN’s aim is to encourage the exchange of ideas and good practices between European social action representatives.
