Alcove Project

Healthy life expectancy has dramatically increased in Europe over the past 50 years.  At the same time, there has been a corresponding increase in diseases linked to aging, particularly dementia.  Alzheimer's disease and related dementias are an EU public health priority given their high prevalence and cost as well as the profound impact they have on society.  The ALCOVE project was co-financed by the European Commission and over the past two years it has built a sustainable network which includes 30 partners from 19 EU Member States.  Through its work, ALCOVE has aimed to improve knowledge and to promote the exchange of information on dementia in order to preserve the health, quality of life, autonomy, and dignity of people living with dementia and their carers in EU Member States.
