Alzheimer’s and Dementia: One in 10 Americans has a family member with Alzheimer’s or another related dementia. One in three Americans knows someone with Alzheimer’s or another form of dementia. This September, the Caregiver Corner will offer Hastings caregivers a new presentation that will focus not on the disease, but on understanding the person with the disease. Please watch the Caregiver Corner for information on this new and hopefully enlightening presentation.
If you would like to share a caregiver tip or your story, please call Colleen Fritsch at 651-234-2222.
