Our Mission & Vision
David Davis - Executive Director
“Because I have known the torment of thirst, I would dig a well where others may drink”.
–Ernest Thompson Seton
Founder and Executive Director, David Davis, was the primary caregiver for this mother, who lived with Alzheimer’s for eleven years. His maternal grandmother and aunt also had the disease. His father died at the age of 59 from alcohol-related dementia. “My goal in founding The Memory Care Alliance was to give caregivers what I didn’t have…. education, compassionate understanding, and empowerment”.
He has written numerous articles about Alzheimer’s related care and presents educational programs in our community on a regular basis. He also developed and wrote “Prepare to Care”, an eight-hour caregiver education program presented over four weeks. It is the core educational program for The Memory Care Alliance and provides caregivers with the education, compassion and empowerment needed to successfully travel through their journey of caring for someone with Alzheimer’s.
Before founding The Memory Care Alliance in February of 2017, he was the Northeastern Regional Manager for the Alzheimer’s Association.
David is an Eagle Scout and received the Gold Congressional Award for his leadership and community service.
After serving four years, David is past president of the Santa Fe Eldercare Network, a local group of business professionals who provide various services to the Santa Fe elder community.
“I believe the most valuable resource caregivers have is each other. All The Memory Care Alliance’s programs are based in building communities of care”.
To provide ongoing education and support to families impacted by Alzheimer’s and dementia, replacing social stigmas with compassionate understanding, and a vision for life after diagnosis.
The Memory Care Alliance is pushing to remove social stigmas around Alzheimer’s, and related dementias, create a society where families and their loved ones can access comprehensive information, education and services in a safe and supportive way on their quest to live meaningful and dignified lives.
