Community Service

The DEMENTIA LEARNING INSTITUTE book sales and service fees help support the travel expenses of the dementia education in rural areas of Costa Rica.

This is a volunteer run social service initiative.

Please consider gifting to this valuable cause.


Thank you for the staff training of communication with dementia patients at our St. James, Veteran’s Home. I witnessed a resident who was normally unresponsive become engaged and another suffering from depression begin to participate in conversations.
