We strive to improve the lives, welfare, and dignity for those with cognitive changes, while maintaining the greatest level of compassion, expertise, and integrity.

Dementia Friendly Elgin Friends

We formed this committee for YOU. We have provided resources for you and your family members, in our Resource Guide. We are not a medical association. We encourage you or your loved one to visit a medical professional, to obtain a thorough examination and diagnosis.
