Collaboration...The Key Component in the Battle Plan Against Dementia.
Join our Campaign to become Dementia Friendly.
Bottom line all businesses and individuals need to become Dementia Friendly. The statistics alone show the numbers are staggering and only growing. Now is the time to get ahead of the game before negative outcomes increase. We offer "Dementia Friendly Programs" for both companies and individuals.
How does your organization interact with those dealing with dementia? Do you even know when the person you are talking to has dementia or when you have engaged a care partner struggling to care for a loved one? Chances are you don't have a clue.
There are no significant signs of dementia until a person is further along in the disease. Many people with memory loss are still driving. Alzheimer's disease and Dementia are not just for the "old." People in their 40's are being diagnosed. Did you know that? What else don't you know?
Much of what you and your company does effects people with Alzheimer's disease and other forms of Dementia as well as those caring for them. There are many things you can do to be "Dementia Aware and Dementis Friendly." None of them have to break your budget. In addition, you can help remove the stigmas that those living with the disease have to deal with daily. Contact us and let us show you how to differentiate your organization, become a positive influence in your community, build your brand and your customer base all at the same time by utilizing our multiple platforms, tools and resources.
Below we have broken down businesses into four basic categories. Each has a different focus , influence and impact on those with Dementia and those that care for them. They are as follows:
Businesses with increased contact due to the medical condition
(Examples – Professionals such as - Doctors, Nurses, LPN’s, Clinics, Hospitals, Social Workers, Clergy, Pharmacies, Attorneys, Financial Planners, Insurance Agents, Senior Housing, Realtors…)
Businesses which are part of everyday life
(Examples – Grocery Stores, Bakeries, Coffee Shops, Gas Stations, Restaurants, Banks, Malls/Retail Stores, Hardware Stores, Dry Cleaners, Car Sales, Utility Companies, where you work...)
Influential Businesses - those in power positions
(Examples – Legislators, Media, Clergy, Federal, State, City and County Workers…)
Businesses which supply comfort, entertainment and balance
(Examples – Fitness Centers, Parks, Recreational Centers, Theaters, Beauty Salons, Barber Shops, Sports Arenas, Restaurants, Hotels, Bowling Alleys…)
Alzheimer's Speaks believes collaboration is the key to living a successful and purpose filled life with dementia. By working together, we can push both conventional and alternative efforts forward in search of answers. By joining forces and sharing knowledge, we can win the battle against dementia.
