Alzheimer's & Dementia Information

About Us
In September 2013, members of the Roseville community formed an alliance to work to improve conditions for Roseville individuals with Alzheimer’s disease and other forms of dementia (A/D) and their unpaid caregivers. The alliance is named the Roseville Alzheimer’s and Dementia Community Action Team. Participants in the alliance include community members, municipal staff, aging services professionals, and ISD 623 school district personnel.
