Our Guiding Beliefs

There are tremendous benefits to seeing dementia from a social/relational perspective, and not just a biomedical view.

It is important to proactively anticipate and support the needs and well-being of people living with dementia and care partners.

It is possible to live well with dementia, so long as people have opportunities for meaningful engagement.

People who are living with dementia have important contributions to make in their own lives, the lives of loved ones, and within their communities. They are the true experts on the experience of living with dementia. 

There is immense value in hearing and considering diverse perspectives. With different views at the table, we can develop new insights and learn together.
