Welcome to the Third Annual Maude’s Awards program! Maude’s Awards was developed to gather and share innovations that will enrich the quality of life for persons living with Alzheimer’s disease, and related dementias, and their care partners. For more information and to access the awards application, please visit

Maude’s Awards was created in 2019 by Richard Ferry in honor of his beloved wife of 64 years. In 2013, Maude was diagnosed with dementia and Richard has continued their loving journey as a tireless advocate to discover and share innovations that speak to the challenges and needs of persons living with dementia, and their care partners

Maude’s Awards annually makes up to eight awards – three $25,000 awards to organizations and up to five $5,000 awards to individuals – for innovations excelling in one of four categories of care (listed below). As an individual, you do not need to be a dementia care professional to qualify – we are interested in how family caregivers and persons with dementia are making life better for themselves.

Making Connections

Awarded to the individual or organization that has created meaningful opportunities for persons living with dementia to connect with the people and world around them.  Examples: Creative arts programs, intergenerational opportunities, community service or advocacy projects.

Cultivating Health     

Awarded to the individual or organization that has provided exceptional care or education that supports the long-term physical health of persons living with dementia.  Examples: exercise, nutrition and diet, new or more accessible health protocols.

Supporting Care Partners        

Awarded to the individual or organization that has provided impactful education, training or support for care partners of persons living with dementia.  Examples: adaptive clothing or equipment, respite and/or emotional support, educational tools, ease of access to medical care and social services.

Treating by Design       

Awarded to the individual or organization that has significantly improved the living spaces and/or mobility of persons living with dementia.  Examples include physical environments and impact on quality of life, accessible transportation, and ease/safety of wheelchair transfer.

These are awards for achievement, as opposed to grants for future programs.  The intent of Maude’s Awards is to reward programs that have demonstrated success.  The nominated program must have been active in 2021 or the year prior. If the program is currently active or recurring, it must have completed one year of operation, or enough time to demonstrate success.

The 2021 Awards Recipients were announced in September and can be found here – 2021 Awardees – Maude’s Awards.

2022 applications open on March 14 and will be accepted through May 16 at 6pm PT.

As you will see from the sample video above, conversations are comfortable, casual, and fascinating. We have so much to learn from one another. All recordings will be prerecorded and published to Alzheimer’s Speaks YouTube channel with a specific playlist channel for easy access. Each episode will be pushed out on Alzheimer’s Speaks social media channels as well.

Dementia Chats is a series of video conversations where we talk with the true experts on dementia, those living with a diagnosis. Lori La Bey, founder of Alzheimer’s Speaks facilitates a conversation and is amazed by every conversation what she learns about life with dementia. She encourages everyone not only to watch these videos, but to include those living with dementia in conversations and to listen closely to their insights. They know dementia better than anyone.

  1. Hi, Lori, When I clicked the link to hear Marilyn speak on the post below, it went to a 404 message saying the link could not be found. Could it be my computer? Just in case it is on your end, I wanted you to know. Can you please send me the link to this new post? Perhaps I can open it that way. Thanks. Mary
