Understanding and Responding to Dementia Related Behavior

Behavior is a powerful form of communication and is one of the primary ways for people with dementia to communicate their needs and feelings as the ability to use language is lost. However, some behaviors can present real challenges for caregivers to manage. Join us to learn to decode behavioral messages, identify common behavior triggers, and learn strategies to help intervene with some of the most common behavioral challenges of Alzheimer’s disease.

Visiting with the Person with Dementia
As Alzheimer’s disease or a related dementia disorder progresses, visits may become increasingly difficult. Many times we struggle with what to say or do on a visit, because the person may have difficulty participating in a conversation or do the things that he or she used to enjoy. This program will help participants find new ways of communicating and interacting, as well as provide practical techniques to enhance the visit.

Wednesday, March 18, 2015. 6 p.m. – 7 p.m.

Know the 10 Signs: Early Detection Matters 
The warning signs of Alzheimer's disease are often dismissed as side effects of normal aging.  If you or someone you know is experiencing memory loss or changes in behavior or thinking skills, it's time to learn the facts.  Early detection, diagnosis and intervention are vital because they provide the best opportunities for treatment, support and planning for the future.

Attend this interactive workshop to learn the 10 warning signs of Alzheimer’s disease. We’ll separate myth from reality and address commonly held fears about Alzheimer’s disease.

Monday, March 16, 2015. 1 p.m. - 2 p.m.
