Community news | Friday, April 7, 2017

Kendra Lund, Program Manager with the Fergus Falls Office of the Minnesota-North Dakota chapter of the Alzheimer's Association will discuss "Dementia Vs. Aging: How to Tell the Difference" at the next session of the Lake Region Healthcare (LRH) Living Well Education Series on March 20th.

Kendra is a Licensed Social Worker with a BSW in social work, with a minor in sociology. She has over 10 years of social work experience working in a variety of settings. In her current position, Kendra is able to serve families and the community through educational opportunities, and individualized support and services.

"It can be difficult to tell whether a spouse or a parent is displaying symptoms of dementia or just experiencing natural effects of aging. This topic is helpful for family members and seniors in our community and Kendra is a great resource to help attendees learn to identify when further help is needed and what resources are available," said Natalie Knutson, LRH Director of Wellness.

The Living Well educational forums are held the third Monday of each month at 5:30 p.m. from September through May. The education series is designed to offer a broad range of information on health related topics to address all seven components of Wellness.

The March session will be held on Monday, March 20th from 5:30 to 7 p.m. in the new Main Clinic Lobby at 111 West Vernon Ave. in Fergus Falls.
