Menomonie- Wedding Season is here and residents at American Lutheran Homes Menomonie will get to take a special walk down memory lane when they see vintage wedding dresses and photos from the past. In recent studies, medical professionals found seniors who are at risk or dealing with dementia can be helped with the use of “triggers” from the past. It helps them talk about and relive their special experiences. Not only will residents get to see vintage wedding dresses and a tuxedo exhibit, but there will also be a wedding dance complete with delicious wedding cake.

Please join us for this special day as we celebrate the special ties around marriage and family.
