Education Program Topics

The following programs are available for caregivers or general audiences.

Know the 10 Signs: Early Detection Matters
Topic: Includes video clips of people who have an early-stage diagnosis and how their lives have been affected, clarifies myths and realities of aging and memory loss, research on risk factors, examples of warning signs of Alzheimer's disease, benefits of early detection and early diagnosis, and research updates.
Length: 1 hour

The Basics: Memory Loss, Dementia and Alzheimer’s
Topic: Learn the basics of Alzheimer’s and how it may differ from other types of dementia or memory loss conditions. Additional topics covered include: risk factors, stages, and working with medical professional for proper diagnosis and treatments.
Length: 1-1.5 hours

Living with Alzheimer’s for Caregivers
Topic: Caregivers can learn about what changes to expect as their loved one’s memory loss condition progresses, including effective communication tips, care options for the future, coping with relationship changes, and ways to maintain health as a caregiver.
Options: Can be customized based on the needs of the audience members to include information on early, middle or late stages
Length: 1-1.5 hours

Healthy Living for Your Brain and Body
Topic:  Join us to learn about research in the areas of diet and nutrition, exercise, cognitive activity, and social engagement.  Learn hands-on tools to help incorporate these recommendations into a plan for healthy aging.
Length:  1 hour

Understanding and Responding to Dementia-Related Behavior
Topic:  Behavior is a powerful form of communication and is one of the primary ways for people experiencing dementia to communicate their needs and feelings as the ability to use verbal 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.
Length:  1 hour – 1.5 hours

Effective Communication Strategies
Topic:  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.
Length:  1 hour – 1.5 hours

Most programs require registration minimums. To learn more about upcoming presentations or to schedule a program at your site or facility contact Samantha Sathre at 234.284.2754 or ssathre@alz.org.
