Doggies for Dementia

Doggies for Dementia is a campaign aimed at changing the world one image at a time. Through photo sessions with families impacted by Dementia, we gift families memories and photos, raise awareness and ease the isolation and loneliness for those impacted by Alzheimer's Disease and related Dementia.

 
 

George sits by the window waiting to see the familiar car pull into the driveway. He looks to his wife and says, ‘Maybe they’ll visit today. What do you think?” His wife manages a smile and says, “I hope so too, honey,” as she looks away to hide the tears in her eyes. George remembers how to hug, laugh and feel love and yet friends and family don’t know what to do and they choose to stay away. They too feel lost and sad.

Isolation and loneliness is one of the most common and painful issues for those impacted by Alzheimer’s Disease (AD) and related dementias. The pain of isolation is far-reaching and research has shown it is as detrimental to our health as smoking and obesity. Seriously, it causes the memory to get even worse! Doggies for Dementia can make a huge impact on isolation and you can be a hero too!

By showing the many faces of Alzheimer’s Disease and related Dementias including the challenges, joy, compassion and love, Doggies for Dementia raises awareness and reduce stigma and fear.

LESS FEAR = MORE LOVE AND COMPASSION

This is how Doggies for Dementia changes the World One Image at a Time!

Doggies for Dementia gifts those impacted by Alzheimer’s Disease and related dementias an incredible experience and photos to keep the memories alive. We raise Alzheimer’s Awareness and reduce the very real pain of loneliness and isolation.

What’s it all About?

People with Alzheimer’s Disease and their families are treated to special pampering photo sessions.

Yes, we include doggies because there is a special bond of love between humans and our canine friends.

Who doesn’t love to see our faces light up with joy?

THERE’S MORE!

But wait, there’s more! One to two week later we return with beautiful prints. Seeing the delight and joy on their faces is a priceless treasure to me. We celebrate, thank the sponsors, gift the photos and do a whole lot of smiling!

GRATITUDE

Doggies for Dementia donates a portion of the proceeds to a nonprofit organization that supports the elderly and those with dementia.

They do GREAT work and it’s our chance to publicly show our gratitude.

I love the idea of carrying a BIG camera and a BIG check.
