Imagine living in a community …


♥  where people with changes in cognitive abilities have access to programs that empower and support them as they encounter changes in their lives

♥  where people with “changing minds” thrive and enjoy life for much longer – and with greater hope and happiness — than is currently the case

♥  where people who care about or for people with memory loss and dementia feel like they as well as other members of the community know the best ways to respond to the needs of their loved ones

♥  where everyone of every age knows how to be helpful and supportive — whether in public or in their personal lives — when they encounter someone with memory loss or dementia


The Center for Dementia Education is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization whose goal is to help Gainesville and Alachua County neighborhoods become dementia-friendly communities where our citizens know how to respect the dignity and support the highest possible functionality, independence and quality of life for people living with memory loss or other symptoms of Alzheimer’s or any of the many other causes of dementia.
