Give to the Max to Support Dementia Care in Central Minnesota

Too many times, we heard dementia patients and families say, "They said there's nothing we can do; come back in a year." Families huddle in tears, trying to figure out what to do after hearing these words. With appointments for dementia specialists scheduled out five months or more, we decided to act. In 2021, we opened a Dementia Resource Center Clinic in St. Cloud, MN, where we provide comprehensive dementia care to those living with dementia. As a non-profit, your donations help make this work possible. Please consider donating to this mission. 

A Better Way to Treat Dementia

We believe that collaborating with a patient, their family, and their dementia clinician can slow the progression of dementia symptoms, leading to more life to live. We start with a thorough dementia risk assessment and evaluation in our office, then formulate a diagnosis and management plan. A patient’s referring primary care or specialty clinician remains in charge of their care, but we partner with them to provide a more thorough and successful management. Personalized recommendations for diet, exercise, sleep, relaxation, personal connection, health habits, and therapeutics can be effective in slowing progression.
