SUPPORT DEMENTIA FRIENDLY FORT WORTH
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. Your gift provides social engagement to older adults who are alone, isolated and at greater risk for developing dementia!
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.
- Let’s Get Together — a Social Club for Seniors! Daily online activity sessions designed to engage seniors who are living at home and struggle with anxiety, boredom, depression, loneliness and have limited opportunities to engage socially with others. Each session will feature a guest presenter who will guide participants through fun and engaging activities. Participants will be joined by others who find themselves in a similar situation.
- 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.
