Dementia Week hopes to educate, raise awareness: Number of Americans suffering from the disease could double by 2050

 


BEMIDJI -- A series of events is scheduled next week to help make the Bemidji area a more “dementia friendly community.”

Dementia Week organizers have put together a variety of workshops, opportunities to socialize, and a fundraising walk to raise awareness and help attendees learn more about the condition.

Carol Priest, who is coordinating Dementia Week events, said many consider the neurological condition to be a normal part of aging.
