Our Vision is to create an environment where people living with dementia can achieve success and have the opportunity to live each day with meaning and purpose. DementiAbility strives to remove the focus that is too often placed on disability by replacing it with a focus on ability.
Our Mission is to spread evidence-based knowledge about how to effectively support those living with dementia, and to provide the day-to-day resources needed by those providing the care. By offering education that connects knowledge with practice, the person with dementia can be empowered to live an enriched, purposeful and meaningful life. Using a multi-disciplinary approach we teach individuals, groups and organizations to embrace the DementiAbility Methods as a philosophy of care.
Support for the person with dementia: When staff, caregivers and family learn the DementiAbility Methods and have put them into effect, individuals living with dementia can enjoy the benefits of a prepared environment that has been set up to expose the best of their abilities.
Support for the professional: DementiAbility workshops teach multi-disciplinary non-pharmacological interventions to all members of a team so that working together, they can address the many complex needs of those living with dementia.
Support for the caregiver: Our workshops can help the caregiver understand dementia while offering practical ideas so that they can better support their loved one. Gail Elliot has specifically written a book for caregivers entitled Helping Me, Helping You.
