Age Well Receives a Second Year
The Minnesota Board on Aging has selected Age Well Arrowhead to receive a dementia grant for a second round of funding. “Alzheimer’s alone impacts some 91,000 Minnesotans over age 65 and the number is growing,” said Kari Benson, executive director of the Minnesota Board on Aging. “These funds support education and activities that respond to different cultural norms and values as well as both urban and rural populations.”
Age Well Arrowhead has received $49,999 for dementia awareness training for employers as well as support and services to people who provide care and training to help businesses become more friendly to people with dementia and the people who care for them.
A total of $750,000 appropriated by Legislature for fiscal year 2018 has been divided between 9 different organizations, and Age Well is proud to be one of them.
