ACT on Alzheimer’s Harmony event June 30

A community discussion on aging



Please join Harmony area community members in an engaging dialogue on aging and

planning for the life changes that are inevitable for all within our community. This event will take place Thursday, June 30, 2016, from 5-7 p.m. at Greenfield Lutheran Church Fellowship Hall, 235 Main Avenue S., Harmony. A light meal will be served, free of charge

The Harmony Area Community has been selected to participate in a special project titled “Calling Home” that offers us a chance to extend activities that directly relate to our ACT on Alzheimer’s work. This project is the work of the Citizens League, the Collective Action Lab, and Twin Cities Public Broadcasting Services (formerly TPT). The Citizens League is heading up the effort and has secured funding for it.

The initiative is looking at “home” as a starting place for intergenerational conversations about aging and planning for the life changes that are inevitable. Through this lens, the project is interested to learn from individuals and families about their preferences as they share what home means now and how this might change as they age. During this gathering in Harmony, individuals and families will be invited to discuss how they might navigate big systems like health care, transportation, and finances in order to have the home and community they have envisioned for themselves.

The Citizens League, in partnership with The Collective Action Lab and Twin Cities PBS, is hosting a select series of community conversations in the metro and rural areas of the state, resulting in short-form shareable video profiles of individuals and families. A key aim is that these gatherings will spur additional conversations, which will inspire more proactive planning and more responsive policy making.

Come share your experiences and ideas on aging. Let your voice have an impact.

The Collective Action Lab staff from Minneapolis will be facilitating this event.

Local contacts for more information: Lori Slindee (507) 886-2214 or Tim Samuelson (507) 886-6544.
