Let's look at the variety of opportunities from creating and/or supporting dementia-friendly businesses and communities, to developing, hosting, or facilitating support gatherings, educational tours, conferences, and books.
Clients, families, and staff all appreciate engaging educational events. Sponsoring events is a great way to educate, uplift, and show your audience you care. In doing this, you set your company apart by showing you are listening to their needs, providing them solutions, and are willing to invest in their lives.
Events come in all shapes and sizes and can be leveraged using different mediums and types of venues. Various budgets can be used to pool your resources
and collaborative sponsorships are also possible.
Becoming a thought leader in your industry is wonderful, but elevating to a known thought leader in your community changes your status not only with employees but your clients, their family members, and surrounding businesses. Sponsoring a Dementia Friendly Community can do just that for you. We know as we worked with The Lutheran Home Association to launch the very first Dementia Friendly Community in the United States.
As an established thought leader in your community, you will find your brand recognition, your resources, and your influential capabilities expand. Each can be used for recruitment and the leveraging of retention; of clients, staff, and collaborations.
Let Alzheimer's Speaks help you position your organization to be the go-to company regarding dementia.
By sponsoring a Memory Cafe you are supporting those living with dementia and their care partners; you in turn become a community hero. We know this as we launched one of the first Memory Cafes in the United States in 2011. Arthur's Senior Care continues to sponsor Arthur's Memory Cafe to this day.
Your company can be a lifeline to those in need and support them in a nonjudgmental setting. Memory cafes can be in-person or virtual.
