You Can Make a Difference today: Support Dementia Friendly Fort Worth
Dementia Friendly Fort Worth relies upon generous donations from individuals, companies, organizations and foundations. It is our desire to see individuals and companies who have been impacted by dementia to become regular supporters. For the cost of a cup of coffee per week, your generous donation can provide dementia education for people in businesses, civic groups, faith communities and neighborhoods.
Your donation also supports these important programs:
- 5th Street Café: A Dementia Friendly Social Club. 5th Street Café is a place where persons living with dementia and their care partners can relax and just be themselves, knowing that no one judges them and all who are there are facing similar challenges.
- Activities for Persons living at Home with Dementia. This half-hour online activity session is designed to engage people who are living at home with dementia. Each session will feature a guest presenter who will guide participants through fun and engaging activities they can do from home.
These activities will include things like music therapy, movement, arts, sing-a-longs, and social opportunities. Having a routine can be a major benefit for those with dementia, so we have chosen to offer this program five days a week! Special thanks to the United Way Area Agency on Aging grant funding for making this possible.
- Dementia Friendly Chapel. This special service, which is offered virtually includes singing old hymns, hearing the stories behind some of our favorite hymns, scripture reading, and prayer, but no sermon. Join us as we enjoy these old familiar hymns.
