Sheyenne Valley Memory Cafe Discusses Memory Loss November 30
In North Dakota, 8.1% of those aged 45 and over report they are experiencing confusion or memory loss that is happening more often or getting worse. Nearly two-thirds of them have not talked to a health care professional about it.
“If you are concerned about memory loss and want to learn more, join us for the next Sheyenne Valley Memory Café. Beth Olson from the Alzheimer’s Association will be answering questions about Alzheimer’s and dementia,” states Amber Schmidt, registered nurse at City-County Health District.
Sheyenne Valley Memory Café will be held on Thursday, November 30 at Faith Lutheran Church, 309 4th Street NE, Valley City. Coffee and dessert will be available from 1-3 PM. A brief program will start at 1:30 PM.
A memory café is an opportunity for individuals with dementia or early onset Alzheimer’s to gather together and connect with others. Caregivers and family members are invited to join the Memory Café as well.
