Your donation also supports the 5th Street Café: A Dementia Friendly Social Club.

Why Be a Dementia Friendly City?

There are more than 100 types of dementia, for which there is currently no cure. More than 60% of individuals living with dementia live in your neighborhood and use the businesses and services in your community.
The numbers are staggering: There are now over 20,000 persons in Tarrant County with dementia and by 2025 there will be more than 30,000.
Caregivers are dying faster than those living with dementia.
Won’t you join our efforts to make their days more meaningful?

Our Organization Partners and Funding Sponsors

You know, people get frustrated because their loved ones who have Alzheimer’s, oh, he doesn’t recognize me anymore, how can I recognize this person, if they don’t recognize me? They’re not the same person.  
Well, they are the same person, but they’ve got a brain disease. And it’s not their fault they’ve got this disease.

 

~ Ronald Reagan

Chances are, you know someone who suffers from dementia or is a care partner to a person with dementia
