Seven receive Dementia Friends certificates

The Pilot-Independent - 12/23/2017

Members of the first Dementia Friends class, held at Calvary Church of Walker, recently earned their certificates. The Dementia Friends session informs attendees about dementia, normal aging and Alzheimer's, provides them with learning tools to better communicate with those living with dementia, and offers ideas for how to help support them and their care-givers. The state of Minnesota has a goal of 10,000 Dementia Friends in 2017. As of this date, there are close to 9,000 Dementia Friends. Minnesota is the first state to join in this important endeavor.
