Preparing tomorrow’s leaders
Over the next decade, Arizona will experience the second-highest national increase in the number of
people affected by Alzheimer’s disease. There has never been a more pressing time or need to
prepare dementia care experts than now.

Hospice of the Valley—a long-established leader in dementia care and education—is sponsoring a
fellowship program to enhance workforce development and dementia care programming.
Up to twelve people from a variety of fields will be selected to participate in the year-long fellowship
starting January 2018. They could be nurses, social workers, teachers or even artists with ideas about
using sensory experiences to engage people with dementia.

The fellows and their respective organizations each will receive $5,000 to create a project that
improves quality of life for patients, families and our communities. The time commitment would be
two initial days, one day at six months and one day at 12 months, along with monthly virtual
phone calls.

Application submission deadline is October 13, 2017.
