Memory Bridge

Columbia, SC

Memory Bridge creates programs that connect people with Alzheimer’s disease and related dementias to family, friends, and other people in their local community.


Memory Bridge creates programs that connect people with Alzheimer’s disease and related dementias to family, friends, and other people in their local community. We also create programs that reveal to the general public the depths of memory that dementia does not erase.

Our goal is to create a global community of people who, like us, are learning to listen to people with dementia for what they have to teach us about our own humanity.
The Memory Bridge Initiative is a twelve-week after school program that teaches 6th-12th grade students how to create emotionally meaningful relationships with people with Alzheimer’s disease and related dementias.
“There Is a Bridge” is a groundbreaking documentary produced by Memory Bridge that reveals the largely unrecognized capacity of people with Alzheimer’s and related dementias to maintain emotionally meaningful relationships. For local listings or to purchase the DVD, please visit:
Alzheimer’s disease is not the end. Sometimes it can be a beginning. Memory Bridge is learning how to connect at depths never before thought possible with people who have dementia. We are learning to listen. And listening to love.
