Please join us onMonday, October 1st at 7pm, for an open event hosted Oak Crest Retirement Community:

New Directions in Living Well with Dementia: An Evening with DAI“.

Venue: 2944 Greenwood Acres Dr, DeKalb, IL 60115 USA

Dementia Alliance International (DAI) is a registered 503 (c) (3) charity in the United States, which was launched by eight people with dementia from three countries on January 1, 2015, and now has members in 47 countries.

DAI is an advocacy and support group seeking to represent the 50 million people currently living with dementia, and provides a number of free services and supports for members and their families, and education for the wider community. One person is diagnosed every three seconds with dementia, and it is imperative as a society, we find ways to support people to live more positively with it, and reduce the shame, stigma and discrimination most experience after a diagnosis.

Members of DAI will be speaking at this event, sharing not only their stories of being diagnosed with dementia, but how they have found ways, through DAI, not only to live positively in spite of it, but to empower others to do the same. They will share the power of peer-to-peer support, and highlight some of the outcomes of their global activism for the human rights of all people with dementia.

This is your chance to learn first hand about dementia, from the inside out.
