                                                                   First Monday of every month 10:30-noon

SPARK! at the History Center of Olmsted County is a monthly program designed specifically for people living with memory loss and their care partners. SPARK! is not about the objects, artwork or documents, but rather the items serve as a jumping-off point for sharing stories, conversation and friendship.
 

SPARK! is for adults with memory loss and related dementia in the early to middle stages and their care partners.  Care partners are encouraged to actively participate.  Confidentiality and dignity are always respected.

                             Space is limited. Register by calling Aaron Saterdalen at 507-282-9447 or email                                                                                             programs@olmstedhistory.com
