Where There is Doggies for Dementia, There is LOVE
Jess, Betsy, and Happ
When I think of Jesse, Betsy and Happ I think of Love. Their love story is so sweet and it was a delight to honor them with a photo session. Betsy saw a short clip about Doggies for Dementia on the evening and morning news. Getting to know them and photographing them was a delight. Their story is beautiful. I’m excited to say we are able to get out and do what we do best!
Families are Gifted
We offer at least 2 different types of photo sessions and are flexible with families. 1. We provide full sessions with families and their loved one with dementia in their home or LTC. We may include images of time primping (hair and makeup) because we love candid pics! This is typically with a dog, but it doesn’t have to be. We also return a few weeks later to ‘reveal’ the image. This is also photographed and video recorded. 2. Portrait Days at LTC communities are shorter sessions and include many residents the same day. These have been popular since the Covid-19 outbreak. If the community or resident has a dog, we may include it.
Doggies for Dementia Foundation is a program designed to raise awareness for Alzheimer’s Disease and related dementias. We gift families treasured professional photo sessions and photos. Together we set out to change the world one image at a time by educating and reducing stigma. Doggies for Dementia Foundation is a 501c3 nonprofit corporation founded by Carmen Davailus.
