The symbol for dementia is the forget-me-not.
The symbol for Parkinson's disease is the red tulip.
When we established Dementia Family Pathways, Inc. as a non-profit organization, we did not want to focus on any one form of dementia.
Rather, we embraced what unites us all in one cause -
to raise awareness of dementia as brain loss and
to Become Dementia Friendly as a community!!
Like a family...
Our Founders have a passion for helping
people living with all forms of dementia. The first event that Dementia Family Pathways, Inc. organized was our 1st annual Parkinson's Wellness Expo in November 2019.
Dementia Family Pathways, Inc. strives to provide education support, and resources for other forms of dementia including:
Lewy Body Dementia, Parkinson's disease, Alzheimer's disease, Huntington's disease, Aids Dementia, Alcohol dementia and Vascular dementia.
We are all First Responders in an Emergency!

Story of the Forget me Not
The forget-me-not, a small blue flower, represents remembrance and
has long been associated with dementia.
The person suffering from dementia may experience memory loss among other symptoms of brain loss.
This makes the forget-me-not the perfect flower to represent our cause.
The blue flower is a symbol for anyone who wants to unite against dementia, raise awareness, and support people affected by the condition.
Story of the Red Tulip
The red tulip has been a symbol for Parkinson’s awareness since 1980 when Dutch horticulturalist J.W.S. Van der Wereld, who had PD himself, developed a red and white tulip and named it “Dr. James Parkinson” to honor the London doctor who first described the disease in 1817.
It was Dr. Parkinson’s who first identified and described the disease and brought it to the attention of the medical profession.
