Mission Statement

Dementia Society of America is the leading all-volunteer, all-Dementias nonprofit organization in the United States. Our mission is to enhance the quality of life for those living with Dementia, their caregivers, and the community at large through: education; life enrichment programs; and recognition of superlative Dementia care, and innovation.

Description

Educate. To significantly raise the awareness and decrease the stigma in America to the spectrum of conditions collectively known as Dementia, through education.

Provide. To make available, non-medical, easy-to-understand Dementia awareness materials and resources for individuals, small businesses, larger corporations, civic organizations and communities-at-large. To provide monthly quality-of-life programs within continuing care communities and in public Dementia-friendly forums, that emphasize meaningful therapies for those living with Dementia, and their caregivers.

Recognize. To encourage those who: provide exemplary Dementia caregiving, counseling, support, engagement; develop prevention initiatives; and create innovative products, services, and solutions.

We believe that every American, and each employer in the U.S., should know the facts about Dementia. Therefore, our call-to-action is simply, Know Dementia!
