Documentary and Conference/Arts Fest by Dementia Action Alliance

Revolutionizing Dementia Care, a documentary produced by Community Idea Stations, a PBS-affiliate, in partnership with the Dementia Action Alliance (DAA), a member of Dementia Friendly America’s National Council, portrays how person- and relationship-centered practices enhance the lives of individuals living with dementia. These practices—often simple accommodations that can be implemented at home or in a care setting—offer an increased sense of purpose, self-worth and joy to those living with dementia. “By seeing our strengths, we are empowered. It enriches our lives. This is the true meaning of person-centered care,” notes DAA Advisory Board member, Brian LeBlanc, who is living with dementia. Revolutionizing Dementia Carecan be viewed online at: https://ideastations.org/RevolutionizingDementiaCare and on select local PBS stations.
 
Additionally, registration is now open for DAA’s Conference and Dementia Arts Festwhich will be held June 20 to 22 in Atlanta, GA. The Arts Fest will feature a wide array of art, and artists living with dementia will be speaking about their art-making. The conference theme is fostering attitudes and practices that engage, empower and enable the lives of individuals living with dementia.
