We envision a community in which people with dementia and their family members get the right information and care at the right time, where medical clinicians identify memory loss early in the process and make appropriate referrals to supportive services, and where people with dementia and their families can continue to be active and engaged community members. We recognize that Alzheimer's Disease and other forms of dementia are long-term, chronic conditions that do not yet have a specific cure but  need ongoing management.
