About B Sharp | An Arts Engagement Program
In the United States, 7 million Americans have dementia, and 65,000 of those live in Colorado. This number is estimated to more than triple by 2050.
A healthy community is an inclusive community. Northern Colorado is committed to learning how to engage and create meaningful interactions for those living with dementia. This means reaching out to people with dementia and their caregivers to encourage them to take part in community events — to consciously include rather than just passively accept.
The B Sharp program is an example of a community effort that required collaboration, communication, and a commitment to creating a dementia-friendly community.
