Aberdeen was accepted as a Dementia Friendly America community in 2019 – the first in South Dakota! This group is actively working toward education within our community, led by 41 Champions Team and Action Team members. Our goal is to create a community that is educated about dementia so they may understand and accept dementia patients while supporting caregivers.
