Caregivers Workshop – Feb. 22

For family members caring for
persons with dementia

Effective Communication Strategies and Dementia

Communication is more than just talking and listening – it’s also about sending and
receiving messages through attitude, tone of voice, facial expressions and body
language. As people with Alzheimer’s disease and other dementias progress in
their journey and the ability to use words is lost, families need new ways to
connect. Join us to explore how communication takes place when someone has
Alzheimer’s, learn to decode the verbal and behavioral messages delivered by
someone with dementia, and identify strategies to help you connect and
communicate at each stage of the disease.
