ACT on Alzheimer’s Community Forum to be held


Mon, Aug 25th, 2014
Posted in Harmony Health & Wellness

ACT on Alzheimer’s Community Forum to be held Wednesday, August 27 at 7pm, the ACT on Alzheimer’s-Harmony Action Committee is hosting a meeting in the Community Room at Clara House (formerly Heritage Grove). All are invited to come hear about Alzheimer’s awareness and the steps the ACT on Alzheimer’s-Harmony Action Committee are taking to make our community a more dementia friendly place.

The ACT on Alzheimer’s-Harmony Action Committee began in May after Harmony was named as one of the first round of communities (and definitely the smallest community) to receiving grant funding through the statewide ACT on Alzheimer’s organization which has been created to better help meet needs of people with Alzheimer’s disease.

The need is great, currently 1 in 9 people age 65 and older have Alzheimer’s in Minnesota. Total numbers will increase as our population ages so that the need for awareness and support for those impacted by Alzheimer’s and other dementias is growing rapidly. Using the census demographics in the Harmony area alone, at a ratio of 1 in 9 persons having the disease, over 80 people have Alzheimer’s disease. Many of these folks still live at home and some of them live alone.

At this forum, ACT on Alzheimer’s-Harmony Action Committee members will discuss various related Alzheimer’s topics and have informational materials available.

If you have questions, contact one of the ACT on Alzheimer’s-Harmony Action Committee members: Tim Samuelson-Gundersen Harmony Care Center, Diana Nelson-Gundersen Harmony Medical Clinic, Theresa Knutson-Clara House Harmony, Cliff Johannessen-community advisor, Pastor Betsy Dartt-Greenfield Lutheran Church, Linda Kastantin-Gundersen Minnesota Clinics Manager or Lori Slindee-ACT on Alzheimer’s-Harmony Community Coordinator.

Tim Samuelson, ACT on Alzheimer’s-Harmony Action Committee member says, “Like so many diseases each of us have or will experience Alzheimer’s among our family or friends. If you have at any time encountered this disease attending the ACT on Alzheimer’s forum will benefit you with accurate information and resources for you to ACT on a dementia friendly outcome.”
