Dementia Friendly America - Newtown
See Important Notice Below
- Our Mission -
Within Newtown, PA and the Lower Bucks County region, we will promote Dementia and Brain Health awareness.
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 take the most meaningful actions today, in order to create the best possible tomorrows.
