Welcome!

I (Kathryne Fassbender) am here to help you along the dementia journey. Whether you are a care partner, a person living with dementia, or a neighbor wanting to grow in knowledge and understanding, we are here to come together in community and support.

Becoming relational with individuals with dementia is the most important element in helping all living with dementia live the life they were created to live. We cannot provide the best care possible without first becoming relational. By communicating through words, body, emotions, and creativity, we allow ourselves to discover our shared story.  

Dementia Letters Project started as a Life Enrichment program I developed 5 years ago, and soon became the overarching theme and body of my work. I see the world through the lens of family and professional care partner, having had experience in both, I witnessed how putting our story out into the world became a source of healing, creativity, connection, and hope. Four elements we all deserve to have in our life.

Let us find and share our story. Work with me, sign up for the Monthly Memo, and follow me on social media @dementialetters.

“There is something in us, as storytellers and as listeners to stories, that demands the redemptive act, that demands that what falls at least be offered the chance to be restored.”

Flannery O’Connor
