Marshfield Area Purple Angels is a new non-profit organization created to raise awareness about Alzheimer's disease and other forms of dementia. They provide free services and support to people who have dementia and to those who care for them.

Listed below are some of the services this new non-profit is providing to the Marshfield area:

  • Purple Angels Memory Cafe: Come and enjoy interesting music and fun activities the first Thursday of each month at the Good Shepherd Lutheran Church.

  • Dementia Friendly Marshfield:  a dementia-friendly community is a place where people living with dementia are given the support they need in order to live a high quality life with meaning, purpose and value. The Wisconsin Department of Health Services is promoting this initiative as part of the Wisconsin Dementia Care System Redesign. Marshfield Area Purple Angels has committed to lead this initiative in Marshfield.

  • Sing along with Margaret (Music Therapy): Sing along with Margaret is a special project that brings meaningful music to people with Alzheimer's disease and advanced dementia. Doug Seubert, a certified dementia practitioner and music/activity specialist, facilitates both group and individual music sessions in local care facilities as well as in private homes. A free "sing along with Margaret" CD is also available to anyone who might benefit from the power of music.

  • "Margie's House" (Respite Care): Marshfield Area Purple Angels plans to offer free respite care on evenings and weekends. Anyone with dementia or memory loss can stay with a trained care provider in a safe, comfortable, home setting. This allows family caregivers to get a break, to rest, to run errands, or to meet with friends.  "Margies House" is scheduled to open in October 2017.

  • Care giving Classes and Support Groups: Marshfield Area Purple Angels offers free care giving classes, workshops, and support groups for family caregivers.
