ACT on Alzheimer’s Sartell
About Our ACT Community
The possibility of helping the Sartell community become dementia friendly was sparked by information shared at the annual Meeting of the Minds conference on dementia for families, friends and professionals. With the support of the Central Minnesota Council on Aging, the possibility became a reality. In June 2015, the Sartell Community held its first ACTion Team meeting. Local professionals, senior service providers, caregivers, local law enforcement, and representatives attended the meeting from community education and city, county and state government.
