Since 2001, Onlus "Amici di Casa Insieme" has been operating over the area sorrounding Cesena, providing people suffering from Alzheimer's residing in their own domicile with a concrete help, by trying to improve the quality of their lives, also considering those who daily take care of them (families or external attendants). The association, through volunteers and professionists' help, regularly organises initiatives intended to offer people with Alzheimer's and the ones that attend them recognition, closeness, support, stimulation, information and, last but not least, amusement. Amici di Casa Insieme always arranges its activities taking into account patients and helpers' necessities, limits and potentialities - first of all - and sustaining volunteers' mission, that is to say taking responsability for the greater good and providing help in a free and qualified way, due to periodic education and training programmes and thanks to the sustain of some professional feaugures with whom they use to cooperate. Amici di Casa Insieme aims at achieving a supportive and integrating community, capable of looking after frail people,sustaining their families and creating welcoming and authentic relationships, in order to defeat the sense of exclusion a lot of people with Alzheimer's often experience. Furthermore, since 2013, Amici di Casa Insieme has been engaged in promoting prevention and, since 2015, in encouraging Alzheimer's research, with the purpuse of fighting dementia on every front. Its deep knowledge of the field, gained throughout several years' projects, together with an established collaboration with some local institutions and online associations, makes Amici di Casa Insieme a trustworthy and dynamic organisation.

the cerebral alterations that occur at the cellular level before Alzheimer's symptoms appear, in order
to develop possible therapeutical interventions to counter the disease.
