OUR SONG FOR DEMENTIA CAMPAIGN

Dementia Spotlight Foundation is launching an exciting fundraising campaign. Do you have a favorite song? One that reminds you of your loved one, or one that has been special to you during your caregiving experience? Choose a song that is meaningful to you and/or your loved one, and if your campaign is one of the top three fundraisers; your song will be recorded and performed live at the Alzheimer’s Music Fest in Woodstock, Georgia on World Alzheimer’s Day, Sept. 21, 2019.

Getting started is fun and easy to do. We have all the tools in place for your campaign to become a success. By getting family and friends involved, you’ll be helping spread awareness and raise money for Free Respite Care for our dementia families in need.   

Please help the Dementia Spotlight Foundation continue to provide relief for hundreds of families as these families care for their loved ones. With your help, we will make this happen. 

Our foundation’s mission is to provide free respite care and outstanding dementia education to as many as we can reach. We are also working to make the state of Georgia dementia friendly.

Dementia Spotlight believes strongly in the power of music especially when it comes to dementia care. We know music has the power to evoke emotions in all of us. People tend to associate music with memories and moments in time. This process does not end when a person has dementia. In fact, research has shown that key brain areas linked to musical memory are relatively undamaged by dementia diseases, such as Alzheimer’s.

Not only will music help retrieve countless memories and moments from the past, it has an advantageous effect on several symptoms, including raw emotions and behavior issues. It also a fantastic way too connect with your loved ones.

Our Alzheimer’s Music Fest has sold out over the past years and is right around the corner. Even if you can’t be there in person, you can help raise money for the cause from anywhere in the world!   

Have fun with this and take pleasure in knowing that you’re helping dementia caring families receive vital free respite care.

OUR VISION

Dementia Spotlight Foundation envisions a world that does not fear dementia and fully embraces the rights and needs of individuals and families living with dementia. We aim to raise awareness about dementia with the goal of helping people and communities to better understand it.

OUR MISSION

Dementia Spotlight Foundation is dedicated to supporting lives through advocacy, the arts, and dementia education. We are committed to educating both family and professional caregivers about dementia-related diseases and enhancing the supports and standards of care needed. There are over 120 medical diagnoses leading to symptoms of dementia & the journey of dementia differs for each person depending on age, health, and the type of dementia diagnosis.

OUR FOCUS

Due to the complexity of dementia and the stigmas and fears associated with it, there is still an extreme lack of funding, education, and resources available for individuals and caregivers who need them. While research is thriving and we all hope for a cure, the fact remains: 5.4 million people in the U.S. are living with Alzheimer’s or other forms of dementia. With a focus on LIFE before loss, RIGHTS before research, and CARE before cure, we support the notion that life does not end after a dementia diagnosis and not all abilities are lost. There is life AFTER diagnosis and there is a way forward. Dementia Spotlight Foundation strives to identify service needs and establish approaches to fill those gaps for those families facing a dementia diagnosis. Dementia Spotlight Foundation is a 501(c)(3) Private Operating Foundation established in 2016.
