Alzheimer's Association
Effective Communication Strategies for Caregivers
Wednesday, May 5, 11:00 a.m.-12:00 p.m.
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.

Registration is required.
Alzheimer's Association
Dementia-Related Behaviors
Wednesday, May 12, 11:00 a.m.-12:00 p.m.
During the middle stage of dementia, a person with the disease often starts to exhibit new behaviors that can be confusing for a caregiver. These behaviors are a form of communication and are essential to understanding the needs of the person with dementia. This program will help attendees identify common triggers for behaviors associated with dementia and learn strategies for addressing common related behaviors.
Registration is required.
