Dementia-Inclusive Communities Initiative, & Erasing Boundaries Research Institute. Innovations in social research & programs for dementia inclusive communities, care partner support, and arts access for people living with dementia, their care partners, and communities.


Elder Care Alliance, a non-profit owner/operator of senior living communities, is launching a new social science research entity called the Erasing Boundaries Research Institute. We’ve established a Steering Committee with a number of academic and non-academic partners and now we’re ready to reach out to others around the country who may wish to collaborate on our Advisory Board.

We will be holding two days of sessions (Jan 10 evening and Jan 11 day) to formulate the scope for the first three years – with a focus on social science research of the lived experience for people living with dementia and their care partners. We aim to create a repository where social science research from around the world can be collected and used collaboratively to inform more research as well as better products and services for families.

We hope you’ll consider coming to the beautiful San Francisco Bay Area for this event. If you cannot attend in person, at least one portion of the experience will be made available for remote participation via Zoom.
