We are very excited to announce that Three Pillars will host its first fundraising gala on Friday, April 26, 2019, featuring dueling piano entertainment by Felix and Fingers. Funds raised from this special signature event will be directed to dementia care, with a focus on creating and implementing a dementia-friendly community, both within our own campus and the surrounding community.
So, what is a dementia-friendly community?
A dementia-friendly community is one that recognizes the need for a person with dementia to stay engaged in the community activities they enjoy and continue to live a rich life. This focus tackles issues associated with dementia on a broad basis, which includes not only the Three Pillars campus, but also the surrounding community. The approach requires establishing partnerships with local government, colleges, and other organizations that can provide additional resources and support. It will require education of all members of the community, Three Pillars’ staff, as well as residents and family members. Implementing a dementia-friendly community will result in improved care and services, increased awareness, a change in the stigma attached with dementia, and improved social engagement.
Join us! You are invited to join us on this journey of creating a dementia-friendly community, so please mark your calendars for Friday, April 26, 2019.
Invitations to the gala will be sent in February 2019. Interested attendees who do not receive an invitation, or those interested in sponsoring, donating auction items, or volunteering may also contact the Development Office at 262.965.7294 or via email.
