ADVANCED CAREGIVER WORKSHOPS*

Effective Communication Strategies

Explore how communication takes place when someone has Alzheimer’s, learn to decode the verbal and behavioral messages, and identify strategies to connect and communicate.

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. 

*Designed just for caregivers, family members, and friends. These programs are not appropriate for people who are living with dementia or Alzheimer’s disease.
