You are the DAWN Network.
Your source for strength-based dementia care resources and certification.
What is the DAWN Network?
The short answer is you!
You and the people like you: kind people who want to learn how to interact with someone experiencing dementia in a way that enhances wellbeing and supports companionship.
You—the family members, the friends, the spouses, the neighbors, the colleagues, the amateur and professional caregivers who are learning about strength-based, person-centered dementia care.
You—the agency and facility owners and administrators who want to see your clients and residents less stressed and more able to relax and feel at home, with an intact sense of security and wellbeing.
To each one of you we say thank you! Thank you for spending the time to learn how to respond to someone with Alzheimer’s or dementia in a way that is kind and compassionate—in a way that supports their dignity.
There is hope in dementia. It lies in how we provide care.
