Who We Are

Hello and welcome to Dementia Spring. I’m doctor Marc Rothman, an internist who specializes in the care of older adults and people with complex diseases like dementia. For the past 20 years I have focused on improving the lives of people with dementia and their families. In the clinic, at the hospital, in nursing homes and in my patient’s homes, caring for people with dementia has always been the most rewarding and meaningful part of my career. In my own family I’ve seen the suffering that dementia can cause. My family’s Grandma Sandy has struggled with Alzheimer’s Disease for over 15 years. Her husband, Ira, has been her full time caregiver for the past several years and continues to inspire us all. And my Uncle Allen, the most gregarious and optimistic person I’ve ever met, passed away with frontotemporal dementia nearly 10 years ago.

The Dementia Spring Story

Dementia Tree


Being diagnosed with dementia changes one’s life forever but it’s nothing like what it was 20 or 30 years ago. Back then, people with dementia hid themselves away or were hidden from the world by their families. Today, communities and businesses have rallied to help those with dementia and their caregivers stay active, engaged and involved in the world around them. New technologies and programs help people with dementia find the resources they need. And people with dementia have begun to share their own stories of what it is like to live with memory loss, educating a whole new generation about the challenge of this chronic disease.

Dementia Spring is a non-profit mission-driven organization focused on improving the lives of people with dementia. We are supported by a global team of physicians, caregivers and entrepreneurs dedicated to improving the lives of people with dementia.  Through weekly videos, podcasts and articles, Dementia Spring will bring you the latest medical and scientific breakthroughs, highlight new technologies being developed for people with dementia and education about how to thrive despite a new diagnosis of memory loss.  Dementia Spring is also a place where you can share your stories with us and with each other.
