Your Story Matters
We continually need stories from the families, volunteers, and professionals that we work with to raise awareness by sharing their perspectives and personal experiences with Alzheimer’s and other dementias. Stories in the media, articles, and letters to the editor are incredibly helpful to localize and show the importance of our work right here in Maine. If you are willing to share your personal experience with Alzheimer’s or other dementia, our staff can help coach and guide you through the process. For more information contact firstname.lastname@example.org
