Hosted by the Alzheimer’s Association Minnesota-North Dakota Chapter and Mayo Clinic, the conference draws over 1,300 participants and over 70 sponsors and exhibits. Imagine a convergence of persons with dementia, family caregivers and professionals all learning, sharing and networking. The passion to provide the best care, identify resources and support for those in need of Alzheimer and dementia care was palpable.

The most memorable moment of the day for the HealthStar team was when Lucinda Hochsprung visited our exhibit. She shared that she attended the conference last year and learned about HealthStar’s Alzheimer’s Whisperer program. With much appreciation for the HealthStar team and what she learned, Lucinda shared, “I found HealthStar’s Alzheimer’s Whisperer information very helpful with my Dad.” It was a touching moment that affirmed the importance of the services that are provided and the lives that are positively touched by HealthStar.
