Memory Advocate Peers

Empowering Through Peer Support

Mission

Memory Advocate Peers (MAP) is a peer support program that pairs recently diagnosed patients with dementia and their support partners with trained volunteers who have personal experience caring for someone with dementia. MAP has a focus on support individuals from communities under-represented in research.

Vision

MAP aims to improve the post-diagnostic experience of people with cognitive impairment through empathy, education and empowerment; increase dementia  research participation; and connect clients and support partners to community resources and supportive services.
