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.

We’ve been training first responders for the past five years on Dementia Awareness.
