Mille Lacs Health System
The Mille Lacs Area is one of several communities across Minnesota whose citizens are working together to improve the lives of people with Alzheimer’s and the lives of their caregivers. ACT on Alzheimer’s® is partnering with these communities to help them become ready for the increasing number of people who will have dementia as the population ages.
ACT on Alzheimer’s® is a volunteer-driven, statewide collaboration preparing Minnesota for the impacts of Alzheimer’s disease and related dementias. One of its goals is to help communities become “dementia-capable.” A dementia-capable community is informed, safe, respects individuals with dementia and their families and caregivers, and provides options that support quality of life.
