Fox Valley Memory Project works to create dementia-friendly communities where the fear and isolation often associated with dementia are eased by connecting people with one another and with resources to live well with dementia.
Resources to live well with dementia
Fox Valley Memory Project is a collaborative non-profit organization operating and supporting programs and services that improve quality of life for those experiencing dementia as well as their family, care partners, and friends. We encourage practices of hospitality and inclusion to foster a dementia-friendly community.
The most popular programs are Memory Cafés, which offer creative themes and activities designed to welcome and engage those with a dementia. The Memory Loss Resource Center provides information to support care partners and family members on the dementia journey. Through community outreach and educational events, Fox Valley Memory Project is increasing awareness of living well with memory loss and creating an inclusive community.
Learn more about these programs and more resources available to help your loved ones on our website.
