COVID-19 (Coronavirus) Update Learn More

Dear Friends and Neighbors,

CentraCare care givers have been working around the clock for more than 20 months to care for you, your families and friends during COVID. We are committed to caring for every Minnesotan who needs us, and nothing will prevent us from doing so – even during these never-seen-before times.

The challenge of providing this level of care is that our hospital beds are often full. ERs in all of our hospitals are packed. And our clinical teams are exhausted. Early in the pandemic, our community stepped up in amazing ways to help us. We ask that you again join us in fighting this pandemic together.

How can you help?

  • Please get your COVID vaccines and booster shots. They are proven safe and effective in reducing COVID illness, keeping people out of the hospital, and preventing death.
  • If your situation is not an emergency, please use other care options, including:
  • If this is a medical emergency, call 9-1-1, or visit the ER.

Together, we can do this. Thank you for your support.

Ken Holmen, MD
President and CEO

Free Dementia Support Group to Begin in February

Published in Media Releases Author:

CentraCare – Monticello is offering a free dementia support group to provide comfort and healing for caregivers and families who are affected by Alzheimer’s, dementia or a related condition. The compassionate group meets the second and fourth Tuesday of every month beginning on February 11, 2020, from 1– 3p.m. in conference room C in the lower level of the hospital.

“Caring for someone who is living with dementia can be very difficult,” said Andria Twingstrom, MSW, LGSW, Psychotherapist at CentraCare – Monticello. “The goal of our support group is to provide education to those who are impacted by this condition and create a greater awareness of tools that are available to help them not only care for their loved one but also care for themselves. By coming together as a group we create an atmosphere of healing in a positive and supportive environment while also learning new skills that empower us to better manage any challenges that we may face in our journey alongside a loved one with dementia.”
