Become Known For The Education & Support You Offer Staff, Clients, & Families
Educational Branding is a fantastic way to get recognized by your niche market. We all know word of mouth is still the most powerful marketing tool as it's a formal endorsement by the person repeating your information. The chance of your name being shared significantly increases when it's not solely about you anymore, but instead, it's about helping others by supplying useful, easy-to-access, and easy-to-implement resources.
This is truly a win-win situation for all. Below are some examples of how we can help you expand your brand footprint through educational branding.

Alzheimer’s Speaks Radio is believed to be the first radio show in the world dedicated to dementia and caregiving. We launched in 2011, to welcome and raise voices around the world and have held tight to that mission. Our vision to give voice to all people around the world has only expanded. We share real-life experiences, products, tools, services, research, advocacy, and more. Our audience continues to expand through these global conversations.
Dementia Chats™ Educational Videos are helpful for individuals diagnosed, families, and professionals. They are a conversation with the true experts, those living with a form of dementia that our founder Lori La Bey facilitates.
Our goal has always been to raise the voice of those living with dementia to change people’s perceptions of the diagnosis. Your company can be a sponsor of these discussions or use them for educational purposes.
Dementia and the Arts™ Educational Panel is about being inclusive of all people no matter what form of dementia they are living with or what skill levels they have. We elevate their voices while raising awareness of their abilities.
Alzheimer's Speaks loves giving those living with dementia a platform where they can contribute to shifting our care culture from crisis to comfort. They are our the true leaders in the industry and they must be elevated and heard. By sharing their art work, talking about how they adapt as symptoms change, and how art effects their emotions, symptoms, and confidence is incredibly.
Dementia Quick Tips™ are video vignettes highlighting life lessons from our Founder Lori La Bey who cared for her mother who lived with dementia for 30 years. These vignettes, pull back the curtain of care to find peace and joy in the journey and help people see the possibility of living graciously alongside dementia.
Learn About "Community Movements" & How You Can Leverage Them
Community Movements come in all shapes and sizes. Our Founder, Lori La Bey has created and collaborated on a variety of programs. Below are highlights of how your organization or community can get involved to leverage your presence as a progressive leader in the industry.
Dementia Friendly Businesses and Communities (DFBC) are close to our hearts here at Alzheimer's Speaks. Lori La Bey consulted with The Lutheran Home Association in 2003, to launch the first Dementia Friendly Community in the United States in Watertown, Wisconsin.
We also offer the Dementia Star™ training program which can be used for communities, businesses, and organizations who would like a formal branded educational program to support their movement.
Memory Cafes are a wonderful support concept that started overseas and was shared with us here in the United States. Our founder Lori La Bey launched one of the first Memory Cafes in her hometown of Roseville Minnesota. Arthur's Memory Cafe was sponsored by Arthur's Senior Care in 2011, and they continue to sponsor the cafe today.
These gatherings support both the person with a form of dementia and their care partners. Members continue to refer to Arthur's Memory Cafe as their lifeline to a new family, resources, and overall emotional sanity.
The Family By Choice™ series was developed to be impactful, repeatable, and easily implemented. FBC is a six-part staff development series, with a bonus session.
Your staff enjoy the fast pace of these events and walk away with simple techniques to improve quality of life issues not only for their patients, residents, and/or clients, but themselves.
This series was designed to be cost-effective and respectful of your budget. Each session can be tailored to meet your needs from 30 to 45 minutes in length as we want to honor staff availability and shift schedules. This assures consistent information being disseminated to all staff; decreasing miscommunications and increasing results.
In addition, we can present concepts to family members the same day to ensure we reach a full circle with the delivery of developmental techniques and attitudes to improve your care culture. Conscious Caring Support™ programs
Conscious Caring Support™ programs explore the underbelly of giving care in a safe, fun environment. By exploring things most people don’t dare talk about, we can identify what is dragging us down, ripping at our souls, and making us feel less than others.
Our Conscious Caring Support™ programs offer a supportive place where people feel comfortable expressing and processing their emotions when dealing with dementia. We have two different types of offerings and each program can be tailored for those living with a form of dementia in its early stages, family members, and staff.
The Global Purple Angel Project was started by Norms McNamara, a man living with dementia in Torquay in the United Kingdom. The symbol has been embraced by individuals and organizations around the world spreading dementia awareness.
The Purple Angel symbolizes a guardian over those living with a form of dementia, their families and friends, and those advocating for change.
The Former Dementia Caregiver Re-Entry Program (FDCRP) was developed by the Roseville Alzheimer's and Dementia Community Action Team in Roseville, Minnesota. Our founder, Lori La Bey is a founding member of the group and was on the committee that developed the program.
The program was developed to meet the needs of Care Partners who had lost their loved ones to dementia. We found so many Care Partners felt isolated and alone once again, trying to figure out where they fit in life. Many had cut ties to their circle of friends due to care duties.
Many former Care Partners are asked by family and friends, "What are you going to do now? What do you like to do?" Their answers are typically deep and hollow, "I don't know." There is a definite need to help those that cared.
Alzheimer's Speaks founder Lori La Bey specializes in dementia care. Her programs are easily adapted to a variety of groups as caring has no boundaries; be it family, organizations, or communities. True service at every level is about caring well; through dignity, education, compassion, and inclusion.
We offer a variety of programs and tailor our events and engagements to meet your targeted audience.
