Effective Communication Strategies for Alzheimer’s/Dementia Caregivers
June 13 @ 5:30 PM - 7:00 PMFREE
ALZHEIMER’S ASSOCIATION OFFERS COMMUNICATION PRESENTATION IN STEVENSVILLE
Free community presentation provides insights into communication strategies for Alzheimer’s and dementia caregivers
The Alzheimer’s Association is hosting a free informational community program, Effective Communication Strategies, on Thursday, June 13 at North Valley Public Library at 208 Main St. in Stevensville from 5:30 – 7:00PM.
Individuals living with Alzheimer’s and other forms of dementia often experience changes in communication and behaviors that can be confusing to friends and family. For caregivers, learning to decode messages through attitude, tone of voice, facial expressions and body language can help all involved to connect and communicate in meaningful ways throughout the duration of the disease.
Attendees will learn:
- The communication changes that take place throughout the course of the disease.
- How to decode the verbal and behavioral messages delivered by someone with dementia and respond in ways that are helpful to the person.
- How to identify strategies to connect and communicate at each stage of the disease.
There is no cost to attend, but RSVPs are requested to the Alzheimer’s Association 24/7 Helpline at 800.272.3900.
