Unlocking the Doors: Creating Inclusivity for People Living with Dementia
Thursday, December 13, 2018


You may not have heard yet, but there’s an international movement happening.  As the World Health Organization has stated, “people with dementia are frequently denied the basic rights and freedoms available to others.”  Around the world, people living with dementia and their care partners are demanding those human rights and freedoms and a very different future.  

Whether it’s unlocking the doors of a secured memory “unit” or creating dementia-inclusive cities, change is coming.  Are you ready for this shift?  It’s certainly a complex topic, one that requires much planning, thought and knowledge.  The time for learning and exploration is now.

In this very special 2-part webinar series presented by The Eden Alternative and the Dementia Action Alliance, you’ll hear from visionaries and experts who have studied and implemented this change, including the most important experts of all - individuals who are themselves living with dementia.  

Part I - The Big Picture, Tuesday, November 27, 2-3:00 pm ET

A panel discussion focused on what you need to know to make a difference. Panelists include award-winning author and geriatrician, Al Power, MD; esteemed researcher Jennifer Carson, PhD; and Brian LeBlanc, International Alzheimer’s Advocate, who, himself, lives well with Alzheimer’s Disease.

Part 2 - Making It HappenThursday, December 13, 2-3:00 pm ET 

A panel discussion featuring organizations that have taken the leap by unlocking their doors and/or engaging stakeholders through education and meaningful connection.  Pat Sprigg of Carol Woods in North Carolina and Amy Ivey of Dunbar Village in Mississippi will provide a congregate living viewpoint, while Marigrace Becker of the Momentia movement in Seattle offers a community-wide perspective.
