Living Healthy Washington County works with health systems and community partners to improve health status for older adults, slow the progression of dementia, and support caregivers. Expected growth in Minnesota’s older population also means a growth in Minnesotans living with Alzheimer’s and other dementias. SHIP funds will support organizations and community efforts to increase dementia awareness and education.
Living Healthy Washington County works with community partners to provide opportunities for older adults to lead longer, healthier lives. SHIP can help play a part in keeping older adults healthy through social connections, access to physical activity and nutrition, and reducing the fears of falls.
