Momentia is a grassroots movement empowering persons with memory loss and their loved ones to remain connected and active in the community. 

The Puget Sound region is home to a variety of dementia-friendly opportunities offered by a growing number of community members and organizations.

Seattle/King County is a leader in the movement to build a dementia friendly city and is shining a spotlight on the Momentia Movement by sharing positive and representative images of persons living with dementia and ensuring that people know about Momentia and know they are welcomed by this community of support.  

Their goal: A stronger, more caring, more inclusive city—better prepared to overcome fear and stigma, foster empathy, advance knowledge and engagement—more willing to explore the changing relationships we have with loved ones living with dementia and our ability to nurture fulfilling relationships as members of a dementia friendly community.

Watch Living With Memory Loss: In Our Own Words

Out of desire to be advocates, members of The Gathering Place program who are living with memory loss chose to create a short documentary, Living with Memory Loss: In Our Own Words. In this film they share inspiring advice and offer a more holistic narrative about living with memory loss. It is powerful to hear the voices and wisdom of people living with memory loss, and it is hoped that their fiercely open-hearted, humorous and hopeful messages have a positive impact.
