While there are many organizations throughout the country focused on treating and curing dementia, there are only a few devoted primarily to the provision of care for persons affected by dementia.

The Connected Horse

In mid-2015, long-time friends, equestrians and residential dementia care specialists, Nancy Schier Anzelmo and Paula Hertel, began to wonder if they could combine their passion for horses with their knowledge of dementia to create programs to benefit those affected by cognitive disorders.

Dementia Action Alliance

In January 2012, the Alliance invited Nancy Schier Anzelmo, Founder and Principal of Alzheimer’s Care Associates (ACA), along with other highly regarded advocates in the field to Washington, D.C. to develop the group’s assessment of dementia care in our country. Nancy continues her involvement and active advocacy with DAA as a Partner.
