Our Funding Partners

The Brenda Strafford Foundation's Dementia Friendly Communities pilot project and development of the 'Guide for Creating Dementia Friendly Communities in Alberta' was made possible thanks to funding from:


“Dementia Friendly Communities help seniors and others living with dementia to stay active and connected to the hamlets, towns and cities they call home. This guide will have a long-lasting impact on Albertans with dementia, their caregivers and the broader community.”

Josephine Pon, Minister of Seniors and Housing


“Alberta Innovates (AI) is pleased to play a partnering role in supporting the Dementia Friendly Communities project. Healthy seniors create healthy and vibrant communities. AI’s key investment not only benefits those with dementia, but also their families, caregivers, and communities around Alberta.”

Brenda Kenny, Chair of the Board of Directors, Alberta Innovates


“As our population continues to age, it’s even more important to have resources to help families, caregivers and healthcare professionals better support and understand the challenges those living with dementia may have. AHS is a proud partner in this work, and this just continues to prove we can always provide more to support Albertans.”
