Welcome to Dementia Friendly Bloomington!

We are advocating for change in Bloomington and throughout the state so those living with dementia are able to act with autonomy and are given access to resources.

You can find resources and links here on our page that create community and advocate for fairness and equality as well as ways to get involved in the changes that are needed. 

Here you can find events and education that empowers you to become aware and involved in your own care or find ways to give back to the community.

We welcome you!

Current programs can be found on our Events page, but also there may be some posted on this page to get you started!

For, indeed, that’s all who ever have.
