Our Volunteers

Dementia Friendly Lehigh Valley is entirely operated by volunteers.  Individuals from all sectors of our community share their time and talent to help make the Lehigh Valley a more understanding, accepting, and welcoming community for people living with dementia and their care partners.  Aligned with the structure recommended by Dementia Friendly America, DFLV strives to include representatives from across community sectors and from different backgrounds, cultures, and life experiences.

Currently the DFLV Coalition and the multiple work groups are made up of the following members:
