You’re not facing dementia alone. There’s a community of support here for you—neighbors, public servants and a wealth of resources. Navigate dementia by connecting with these local resources. There’s no wrong door.
Our goal is to make the community more aware, informed, sensitive and supportive of people experiencing and caring for those with Alzheimer’s and other forms of Dementia.
Our objective is to improve awareness of the resources and organizations available to support people with dementia and their families and increase knowledge of dementia across the community.
This project is led by and a priority of The Victory Fund, a foundation created to help communities in northeastern Minnesota identify, address and resolve chronic health issues.
Established in 2016, Dementia Friendly Duluth is here to grow a community kind to all minds. We’re happy to see other organizations rallying around this goal — and creating informational videos on how you can be dementia friendly. Watch below.
