A Tribute to Our Friend and Advocate Paulan Gordon

The above video is in Memory of Paulan Gordon a good friend to many and a global advocate who lived with vascular dementia. Paulan was fearless and progressive in her mission to improve dementia care & support. She helped people understand what stigmas where attached to a diagnosis of dementia and routinely educated people how to recognize and reduce stigmas through inclusion and giving people hope that living well with dementia was possible.

This video was pulled together in collaboration of three organizations which Paulan was actively involved in: Dementia Action Alliance (DAA), Dementia Mentors, and Alzheimer’s Speaks. We thank all of the individuals that shared their love and respect for Paulan Gordon and her advocacy.

Join Us In Honoring Paulan Gordon’s Life

It is with deep sadness we inform you Paulan Gordon passed away on October 2, 2021 just before 11:00am ET.

Paulan had a heart of gold and was a tireless advocate and supporter of others living with dementia. Her smile and tender spirit will be missed by many of us.

Paulan was very active with Dementia Action Alliance, Dementia Mentors, and Alzheimer’s Speaks (both our radio show and Dementia Chats educational videos). Together these three organization will be joining forces to honor Paulan’s advocacy and pay tribute to her life.

Below outlines how you can participate in honoring Paulan.

We are inviting friends from all three communities and other friends and family to join us to commemorate Paulan’s precious life in three ways.

1.) Upload your pictures or short videos clips into the below link.  These will be made into a video which will be sent to the family and posted on all three websites. 

https://1drv.ms/u/s!Av-I8HeAPjAe2XeZDUf9_LNJradX?e=j2VdD5

In order to complete this in a timely manner, we will accept photos until Friday, October 15th.

2.)  Join us for a Zoom Memorial Tribute on Tuesday October 12th at 11:00 ET. Email us if you would like the link

3.) Record a message: Tell the family and friends what Paulan meant to you.  Come on Zoom to record a memory, a laugh, a special moment – or whatever.  These moments will be recorded, sent to Paulan’s Family and shared throughout social media.   The Zoom will be open on Wednesday, October13 from 11:00 ET until 12:00 ET and again on Thursday, October 14 from 4:00 ET to 5:00 ET. Email us if you would like the link

Please send me an email and I will send an email at a later time with the Zoom links and funeral information.
