Dementia Friends Minnesota

Dementia Friends Class

Dementia Resource Center, St Cloud
Every Third Wednesday from 10AM-11AM
Contact: Tami Kolbinger 320-640-6695

Dementia Friends is a global movement that is changing the way people think, act, and talk about dementia. By helping everyone in a community understand what dementia is and how it affects people, each of us can make a difference for people touched by dementia.

What exactly does it mean to attend a Dementia Friends session and become a Dementia Friend? A Dementia Friend is someone who, through attending an in-person session, learns about what it’s like to live with dementia and then turns that understanding into action. From telling friends about the Dementia Friends program to visiting someone who is living with dementia, every action counts.
