Act Now Foundation


September 2019 - January 2020 • North Bergen, NJ

What I liked

This foundation makes an impact in their community. The women behind Act Now are invested, intelligent, and loving. They see and have felt the way dementia can affect a person and their loved ones, and will exhaust their resources the make sure every family gets the support they need. They educate, they encourage and they help improve the lives of those struggling with dementia. This is a non-profit organization and the services they provide can change peoples lives. This organization does a lot, but there are a few aspects I want to highlight. First, they educate. As an intern, you get to assist in giving presentations and education seniors on ways to live a healthier life or improve their health. Second, they support. One of the most incredible resources they provide is support for someone with dementia as well as their family and caregivers, whether educational, emotional, or legal support. Lastly, they raise awareness about Dementia. I think anyone would be lucky to be apart of this organization and to get to do such rewarding work.

What I wish was different

There was nothing I did not like about this internship, it is an incredible experience.


I think anyone who gets the opportunity to work for Act Now Foundation should truly embrace the experience. Dementia is scary and heartbreaking, and it can be really emotionally triggering. Be prepared to see the reality of the disease, but don't let it overwhelm you, you're there to help!
