For inspiration on how to engage people living with dementia into a worshipful experience, be sure to read this collective of stories and ideas from clergy, lay people, and people living with a dementia diagnosis.
I have a dream that the South Alabama area will become "Dementia Friendly". I believe that the good people of Alabama are eager to learn how to better communicate with and serve our many citizens living with dementia. There are services and resources already available to help. By joining forces, working together, and networking our strengths, we can raise awareness that will change our perception of dementia. This is a grassroots plan that can only grow by our concerted efforts. Let's get comfortable with terms like "Dementia Friendly" and "Dementia Capable." Let's make our community a great place for people with dementia to live.
Catch the vision.
The Alzheimer's Association Walk to End Alzheimer’s® is the world’s largest event to raise awareness and funds for Alzheimer’s care, support and research. Held annually in more than 650 communities nationwide, this inspiring event calls on participants of all ages and abilities to reclaim the future for millions. Together, we can end Alzheimer’s disease, the nation’s sixth-leading cause of death.
Walk to End Alzheimer’s unites the entire community — family, friends, co-workers, social and religious groups and more --- in a display of combined strength and dedication in the fight against this devastating disease. While there is no fee to register, each participant is expected to fundraise in order to contribute to the cause and raise awareness. The Alzheimer’s Association provides free, easy-to-use tools and staff support to help each participant reach their fundraising goal.
The 2019 Walk Team is already planning for the next Walk to End Alzheimer's.
