New Look. Same Mission.
The Alzheimer’s & Dementia of Wisconsin (ADAW) team is excited to announce our new website has gone live—just in time to celebrate National Alzheimer’s Awareness Month.
We redesigned the website to improve the look and the readability for our audience as we continue our mission to support individuals and families who live with Alzheimer’s and other dementias.
The new site is modern, user-friendly, and intuitive. Site visitors will find resources, educational content, and event information much easier much easier.
Currently, ADAW programs and services reach fifteen counties throughout Wisconsin.
New features include:
• An improved events calendar
• Intuitive design and bold colors
• A text-size tool (increase font sizes on pages throughout the site)
• A revamped resources section (We Can Help)
• Expanded educational resources (Learn More)
• An easy-to-follow list of volunteer opportunities (Get Involved)
• Clear mission and vision statements (About Us)
• A newly designed staff list (About Us)
• An up-to-date list of ADAW press releases and news (Newsroom)
• An organized list of donations, gifts, and tribute ideas (Ways to Give)
• In-depth, original content (features, education, storytelling) (Blog)
ADAW Executive Director Jennifer Bauer, said the ADAW wanted to upgrade to the way in which we share information to our audience.
“This has been a labor of love,” Bauer said. “We hope you enjoy your first look.”
ADAW Director of Communication & Development Melissa Theisen said the new site organization makes it easier to support the ADAW. Confusing, clunky websites that lack organizational support can create roadblocks to our audience – a potentially frustrating experience on the user side.
“People are happy to give when they are not frustrated,” Theisen said. “We’re proud to offer you a site that is fresh and easy-to-navigate.”
ADAW Program Director Becky DeBuhr said the website relaunch is part of an overall communication improvement strategy. The look may have changed—but our mission to support individuals, families, and professionals impacted by Alzheimer’s and other dementias remains the same.
“We are your partner along the dementia journey,” DeBuhr said. “We welcome you to visit our new website. If questions arise, we are only an email or a phone call away.”
When she thinks about the new website, DeBuhr said she is reminded of a quote often used by senior friends in the rural areas.
“Stop by. The coffee is always on.”
We welcome you to take a “test drive” around our new website.
