The New Town Dementia Caring Community newsletter, Dementia Connection, was created in partnership with volunteers from Jacksonville's New Town Success Zone to provide a resource of education and inspiration to care partners of loved ones with memory loss due to Alzheimer's disease and AD-related disorders.

Beginning with the October 2022 quarterly issue, responsibility for the editorial content and production of Dementia Connection was fully assumed by our New Town partners, led by Editor, Mrs. Shirley Brown. We are proud to continue partnering with Mrs. Brown to advise scientific content and local resource information for this newsletter, published by and for the local community.
