Dementia Ventures…Building Capacity

Dementia Ventures is creating community opportunities for people living with dementia to remain active and engaged.

Hub goals for people living with dementia: create a more inclusive community and increase social citizenship.


Living with dementia must include pursuing one’s passions!


Communities that provide diverse opportunities demonstrate that people can remain vibrant contributors to community life well beyond a dementia diagnosis.


Dementia Ventures is building capacity for the inclusion of people with dementia in meaningful activities!


Westside Seniors Hub Partner Organizations are adapting current programs and creating new programs that are inclusive and motivate people living with dementia to socialize according to their interests.
