Dementia does or soon will touch all of us. We are an “in the meantime” organization. We help people discover that “in the meantime,” until cures for the causes of dementia are found, we can make life changing differences NOW for people striving to live well with dementia. We leverage and provide resources, expertise, activities, and education in Northern Colorado communities so that people living with dementia and their care partners can stay engaged and connected in relationships and meaningful life.
Dementia-Friendly Communities of Northern Colorado® started as a volunteer initiative in November, 2015 as a result of the incredible community support we received with the B Sharp Arts Engagement program, a collaborative project enabling couples living with dementia to attend the symphony and participate in a research study. From that project has emerged the larger initiative, and now non-profit organization since January, 2017, Dementia-Friendly Communities of Northern Colorado. We are proudly affiliated with the Purple Angel Ambassadors, an international dementia-friendly awareness campaign. We also collaborate locally with the Alzheimer’s Association and many Northern Colorado senior care organizations. We are also actively engaged with the North American Dementia Action Alliance.
