Series on dementia and aging begins Jan. 12

First talk focuses on staying at home 

Ways to help older people stay in their own homes longer is the first topic in a new, monthly series of talks that starts Thursday, Jan. 12, at the Roseville Library.


Roseville Alzheimer’s program gains volunteers

Marie Oftelie wasn't really looking for something to do last May when she stopped by the Lyngblomsten volunteer display at Roseville City Hall after a talk sponsored by the Roseville ACT on Alzheimer's project.

But her sister-in-law had just moved to Lyngblomsten care center in St. Paul because of memory issues, and she was intrigued by the idea of helping out at one of the day programs staffed by volunteers for people with memory loss that Lyngblomsten supervises at nine Twin Cities area churches.

Concerned that many people and businesses in Roseville are ill-equipped to deal with rising numbers of friends, neighbors or customers struggling with Alzheimer's disease, a volunteer group has launched a community effort to bring help.
The project is called Roseville Act on Alzheimer's, part of a statewide effort to help communities become "dementia friendly."
