VISION STATEMENT

“Re-define Dementia”
To aid in the creation of a paradigm shift in how people with dementia are perceived and treated. Asking the Person with Dementia (PwD) what they want and understanding that they will always answer when someone takes the time to listen.

MISSION STATEMENT

Dementia Connections Coalition has been formed to address the stigma that results after a dementia diagnosis. DCC was established to empower & collaborate with individuals living with dementia to encourage them to use their voice to stay active in their lives. We will serve as a platform to strengthen the voice of the person with dementia (PwD). DCC will campaign, educate and introduce tools that allow all stakeholders to better understand, accept and honor them as they strive to live a strong and rewarding life, despite the dementia diagnosis.
