Alzheimer's Association Presents:
Effective Communication Strategies
for Caregivers
Online, Wednesday, February 3, 11:00 a.m.–12:00 p.m.
Registrants will be emailed a GoToMeeting link the morning of the program.
Individuals living with dementia often experience changes in behavior 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 both parties to connect and communicate in meaningful ways.

This virtual program, presented by the Hudson Valley Chapter of the Alzheimer’s Association, will help explain the communication changes that take place in a person with dementia and identify strategies to connect and communicate at each stage of the disease.

Registration is required.
