About the Foundation

About us

The Dementia Foundation for Spark of Life is a health promotion charity that supports raising funds towards education in the profound Spark of Life Philosophy.

Spark of Life is about enriching human relationships and creating a positive and supportive social environment for people with dementia to live as valued members of the community. It is about shifting social attitude to see past the diagnosis of dementia to the sentient human being who is still present and holds a lifetime of wisdom, even if some of their other skills are beginning to fade.

The Spark of Life Philosophy is about creating caring inclusive environments for people with dementia at home, in community centres, and in residential care where the importance of keeping the ‘Spark’ alight is acknowledged as a priority.

The ‘Spark’ comes from our inner source as a human being and it gives us the will and purpose to live.
