About Us

The Memory Bridge Initiative educates area public school students about Alzheimer's disease and pairs them with elders living with the disease. Using a unique 12-week after-school curriculum, Memory Bridge staff works closely with teachers and Alzheimer's care facilities to foster positive intergenerational communication and to facilitate relationships between students and people with dementia. The Memory Bridge Initiative is featured in the documentary, There Is a Bridge, which is airing on public television stations nationwide.
