Dementia is affecting many people in our community. Currently over 5 million people have Alzheimer’s disease in our country and the numbers are expected to double in the next 30 years. The majority of these individuals live in the community. They will be your customers, your members, your friends and neighbors.
Our Mission: The mission of the Monona Area Dementia Friendly Community Coalition is to collaborate with businesses, organizations and residents to offer education and information on resources to enhance the quality of life for persons with dementia as well as their families, friends and caregivers.
Our Goal: To encourage practices of hospitality and inclusion to those affected by dementia by promoting acceptance and engagement in our community.
