Welcome to
Dementia Aware America™

See Important Notice Below

Community participants engage with a Dementia Aware America discussion.

- Our Mission -
 
Promote Dementia and Brain Health Awareness through community-wide engagement.
 
We recognize that Dementia is not a disease in and of itself, but rather the outward expression of memory loss, behavioral and functional changes, and a myriad of other cognitive challenges that can occur along with diseases such as Alzheimer's Disease; Vascular Dementia; Lewy Body Dementia; Frontotemporal Dementia; CTE (chronic concussion-related Dementia), traumatic brain injury (TBI), among many others.
 
We understand that Dementia is many times misunderstood, misdiagnosed, and subject to stigma, fear, taboo, and apathy. Our goal is to create a ready, supportive and informed environment committed to truth, love, and compassion.

We offer an "open door" to all those affected and seek to make the most meaningful actions today, in order to create the best possible tomorrows.

Nationally, we have philosophically aligned with the following initiatives: AARP Age-Friendly Communities, N4A Dementia Friendly, Dementia Friends, and the World Health Organization's Global Age-Friendly Cities and Communities.
