The Bedford Area Community Dance


Social Experiment


I'm just a person who recently (last year) stumbled across several research reports which address how people who are lonely and/or socially isolated (read - don't spend time with others) are more likely to suffer from dementia...and since I was starting to forget things, I got scared.

If you're skimming this, you might need to back up...this can happen to anybody...


I'm not selling anything, but I am trying to do something about it.

I just want to make you aware of what can happen.

Somewhere, I read that declines can start when a person is in their 20's, and it appears that you don't get a second chance...

I'm working on this website (today is April 24, 2023), but I don't have a clue how long it might take...Please research the "Epidemic of Loneliness" and similar phrases,  and I'll try to do more soon, or you can go on Facebook to The Bedford Experiment, or the "Footloose in Forest" Square Dancers, or you can email me at

Any posts are not in any coherent order.  I'm posting what I can, when I can, and if I wait to put it all in order, I'll never get any of it done.  Regards, Steve DuVal
