Age-related dementia will be the focus of workshops next week in Renville and Willmar


WILLMAR — The journey through age-related dementia is different for everyone, but Renita Thonvold and Mary Laib see one thing in common: Almost everyone benefits from gaining practical tools and information.

“It’s very difficult to do a job if we don’t have the tools or the skills,” said Thonvold.

Providing people with help to navigate their way through memory loss is the goal of a pair of workshops this coming Tuesday in Olivia and Willmar.
