Mission

The Alzheimer’s and Dementia Association of the Cayman Islands (ADACI) was formed in April 2012 and registered with the Cayman Islands Government as a Not For Profit Company under Section 80 of the Companies Law (as amended) on 14 May 2015.  ADACI has also started the process of becoming a member of Alzheimer’s Disease International (ADI), the international federation of Alzheimer’s associations around the world.  ADACI is funded through donations and fund-raising activities.  Its affairs are managed by volunteers and include a medical advisory committee.

Our Mission:

  • To raise awareness within the general public about the various dementias with a focus on Alzheimer’s while diminishing the stigma that currently exists;
  • To educate carers on how to interact and properly care for people with dementia; and

Our Aims:

  • To provide a respite centre or facility for carers where they can come to relax, receive support and share experiences with other carers;
  • To provide formal training for carers so they can better care for people with dementia and themselves;

  • To raise funds for the provision of short term financial assistance for persons with dementia; and
