• Eliminate the stigma and fears associated with dementia

• Encourage those with memory problems to follow up with an exam by a physician or other qualified healthcare professional for an accurate diagnosis, treatment, social services and community resources

• Educate the public about Alzheimer’s disease and successful aging

• Alleviate the fears of those who do not have a problem
