92,000 Minnesotans age 65+ live with Alzheimer's disease and the number is growing. 251,000 caregivers in Minnesota are caring for family members with Alzheimer's and other dementias. Nearly 60% of people with Alzheimer's live in their own homes and need support from families and community members.
— ACT on Alzheimer's
Few community resources exist to assist caregivers and persons living at home with memory loss. For 18 years, Lyngblomsten has made it a priority to assist persons on this difficult and taxing journey by offering a continuum of supportive services such as:
- The Gathering (group respite)
- Support groups
- One-on-one caregiver coaching
- Resource and referral support
- Enrichment programs
These caregiver services are provided through 2nd Half with Lyngblomsten—Centers for Enriching Lives After 50.
The proceeds from the 2018 Lyngblomsten Foundation Spring Gala will help fund these vital services that would otherwise not be possible. Please join us on Friday, April 20, 2018, at Vadnais Heights Commons.
