Dementia awareness event shows that ‘love always remembers'
To the Editor:
A.C.E. of SW MN and the Southwest Minnesota Dementia Awareness Network (SWDAN) were grateful to be able to bring our spring dementia event to our community in May at the lovely Presbyterian Church in Luverne.
Caregivers shared their personal stories which helped us understand how every person’s dementia journey is different. The presenters shared excellent information to help caregivers navigate their journey, and we could see how the caregivers selflessly give their time and hearts to serve others every day.
We are so fortunate to live in a community with generous businesses, organizations and community members who support our dementia walks which allow us to host this great educational event.
 At the end of the day, we all understood that “Love Always Remembers” and we need to hang on to all the good memories of our loved ones. Of all the gifts we can give in this life, love is the most profound. “I Love You” are three of the most powerful words spoken.
