CaringKind President & CEO
A few weeks ago, the world learned the sad news about Bruce Willis being diagnosed with Frontotemporal dementia. We surmise that it was not an easy decision for the family to share this vulnerable information. We salute the family, and especially Bruce Willis, for allowing his diagnosis to be made public. Raising awareness about this illness is still incredibly important for encouraging people to get early diagnoses and to find support, and to increase research.
The media has covered a number of new developments concerning dementia drug treatments. While treatments are paramount, we believe cognitive interventions are also influential in maintaining stability.
Organizations like Caringkind need to work side by side with individuals in earlystage dementia to provide programs that stimulate the brain. We strive to develop new cognitive programs that benefit people living with dementia and related disorders. CaringKind’s partnership can help people express their wants and needs and allow them to live the best version of their lives.
We are also committed to creating social work services that lend support to families and caregivers during all stages of this very long and hard journey. We offer our programs and seminars in person and online, in multiple languages.

Lastly, our organization is grateful to our many wonderful volunteers who help shape and change the lives of people with dementia and their caregivers.
