Living Well with Dementia in the Community – A Photo Contest about Dementia Friendly Communities
Across the country, in communities large and small, people and organizations are working to ensure that neighborhoods, businesses, arts and cultural institutions, faith communities and others are welcoming and supportive of persons living with dementia and their care partners. We are looking for photos that capture the essence and diversity of being dementia friendly.
Please share with us pictures of people and events that demonstrate how persons living with dementia and their care partners can remain engaged and independent in their communities.
For example, a memory café, adult day care activities and support groups, worship services, physical activity programs, library, arts or other cultural activities, sensory gardens and other supportive outdoor spaces, transportation options, accessible business locations, appropriately designed or modified housing options and health services.
We will choose at least one Grand-Prize-Winning photo to be featured on our Dementia Friendly America website, newsletter, and social media platforms using the tags #MemoryGuardians and #DementiaFriendlyAmerica. The Grand-Prize winner(s) and two runner ups will also receive gift cards of $100, $50, and $25.
Winners will be notified via email by Jan 19, 2018 and announced online via Twitter and Facebook on or about Jan 19, 2018. The deadline for submissions is Dec 29, 2017.
